    Help identifying Algae (diatoms/cyano/dino) ?

    Okay, some update. I wanted to try out the no-chemical way first and tried the following steps. I did a complete black-out for 2 days. Shut down the reef lights, no room-lights and no sun-light entering the room where the tank is. I didn't cover the entire thing, just left it in near dark...

    Removed Filter floss and Sponge Filter as per the suggestion. Going to continue feeding 1/2 a cube of mysis or brine for few days. If i'm not able to get the numbers up in a week or so, i'll go ahead and do the NeoPhos and NeoNitro. Thank you.

    Hello, My tank suddenly had this in a day. Earlier there were some diatoms on the sand bed and most of the algae was floating in water. From the last 3 days, water seems clear but the rock and sand both have alage as shown in pictures. I don’t see any sliminess, but see small string like...
