    Reef E - both Marius and Singularity is 100% correct ..... And unfortunately, I am too suffering from that stage of the cycle process again! ;)

    when my tank was new I also had big problems with alge, just part of the cycle. But 2 years latter I can still get unwanted alge, I found the best way to controle it is to controle the light. Cut down on your light hours, also I found that adding Ca terns it to coralien alge.
