    Hi guys am new to this forum and have been reading the posts and how things have changed since i left marine fish back in 2000.
    I have recently started up again and been running for 7 months and have managed to get it right, my only issue algae on the back of the tank, had all my tests done on Saturday and everything was fine
    Phosphates 0
    Nitrate 0
    .ph 8.3
    Etc
    I have a pic not sure how to upload though i bought a yellow tang to control the algae, just trying to find out what algae it is, but with out a pic will be difficult (help needed for pic)
    I dose with kalk wasser, nopox, calcium and magnesium and am running anti phos in my nitrate reactor. I do have calurpa in one compartment of my stump growing wild.

    Tia

    pics of algae

    I hope that the tang will feed off this, what else would he feed off as years ago i used to feed peas to the fish and they ate heartily Tia
