I know this is an age old question, but I need some advice...
I currently have a 280 Gallon (12 Week Old) saltwater.
The equipment is as follows:
Overflow into below sump
2 bottom holes that go to a Nu-Clear 533 Filter
I also have 4 Powerheads for water movement
The contents are as follows:
5 Green Chromis
1 Tomato Clown
150 Lbs. Live Rock
8 Peppermint Shrimp
4 Emerald Crabs
(Too many to count) Nassarius Snails
50 Cerith Snails
Sorry about all the detail, but I wanted to give you a complete picture...
My question is I have about 3 inches of a sand/crushed coral mixed substrate...
I am getting a red colored alge I assume throughout..
I do not think I am getting the proper mixing and aeration of the substate...
Should I reduce the amount or is there anything that could help me with the mixing and cleaning?
Thanks for your help in advance
