    Need to change a few things on "signature" I guess:

    refugium (no skimmer)
    Most poeple from what I've found use a 6,500 - 6,700 rated bulb for the refugium.

    Cheers,

    I understand that PHOSPHATE levels are a huge contributor to algae problems...just a thought.

    Good Post

    Just remember they have a in hole and a out hole thus supplimenting new algae growth. You still need to get it out to the sewer.

    bI just git a protein skimmer that works fantastic! Hopefully it will help the algae control in my tank.
    Hello, my name is Brendon and I am paralyzed from the shoulders down. I'm running a saltwater fish tank without arms or legs.

    Go check out the thread I started.

    algae is hard to remove. Good protein Skimmer will help but the most is the water change and the quality of your water.

    Brown Algae

    I just setup my first saltwater tank. I'm getting a large amount of brown algae. Will this go away once my cycle is through or is there something I should do to call this outbreak? Thanks for any advice.

    in time the diatoms will burn themselves out when the silicates are gone, there are snail species that will eat it and take the edge off, but the process will happen and it just takes time until they are completely gone for good.
