I guess I'm talking about routine maintanence. Initially the algae was a rust color. I was told this was a diatom bloom. Now it's more purpleish. The bulbs on the lamps are about 3-4months old. The Protein skimmer is a coralife needle wheel skimmer for up to 125 gallon tanks and I have 2 UV filters. I feed my fish once a day, mainly frozen brine shrimp, krill and mysis shrimp. Once in a blue moon I'll put a little brown seaweed in the algae clip for my Tang. I have a CUC (Turbo Snails, Tonga snails, Nassarus snails, small blue leg hermits and 1 large red leg hermit) a Black spine urchin, a long tentacle anemone, Marine Beta, Maroon Clownfish, Yellow Tang a couple of soft corals, and a clam.
