    Well, for us to assist we need some answers. You can start by giving us more info on your tank, like what filtration you have, how old the tank is, what lights you running and how old they are, what live stock you got and what you feed them, etc. You also need to give us your water parameters eg, nitrates and phosphates.

    Hairy Alge Probleme

    Well to be honest my sump aint that big. I think thats the cause. I have a standard skimmer and phosfate reactor. I test my water every week and everything seems normal. The tank is now running for 6 months. I have got an extra JEBO filtration system because of the small sump. i have got about 25 odd corrals but dont know their names yet. i have got clamms, annamouns, mushrooms ect.

    A small sump don't cause hair algae, nutrients in the water does - which can be caused by inadequite filtration, too much feeding, etc. I can have a small sump with only a NP pellet reactor and skimmer and it will be enough.
    What are the actual parameters and what test kits do you use - did you check the expiry dates on them?
    What is a standard skimmer? And what is this jebo filtration system and what is in there?
    For us to help you we cannot go on "everything seems normal" or "standard skimmer", etc. Everything is not normal, if it was, you wouldn't be struggling with GHA.
    I asked you a lot of questions in my previous post, if I don't know I can't help ;)

    Hairy Alge Probleme

    Ok. My Lights Run From 6am to 9pm. The Metal Hilide Runs only 2 hours. My Lights are 4 tubes of 2x 12 000 Calvin, 1x Corral Blue and 1x Atinic. Baughts the tubes about 3months ago (Reeftek) I use SERA test kits and not yet expired.The parameters are all 0.0-0.05. very very close to 0.0. I use NP reducing BioPellets in my Reactor. The Skimmer is a Macro Aquarium and runs at 1200l ph and skimms very dark. The JEBO is a sealed unit with filter spunge witch i replaced 3 months ago but didnt clean it from there yet. I have got only 7 fish. 2x clowns, cannery wras, regal tang, 2x yellow tailed damsels and 1 more i dont know the name of. Tank Runs at 25-26 degrs and about 12 000l ph flow on powerheads.
