We have a 29 gallon fish only with live rock saltwater aquarium. We have two yellow tailed damsels in the aquarium. We are starting small because we are beginners. We have developed a serious algae problem. The entire tank is covered within 2 weeks of cleaning it. We have successfully maintained a fresh water (55 gallon) tank with minimal algae problems.
We have a protein skimmer, and a fluval canister filter. Live sand and 2 pounds of live rock. We are going to add some more live rock, the pet store is well over an hour away, so we just haven't made the trek yet.
Right now, I would like some hints on how to control the algae. Should we add an algae eating species? Is there an algae treatment that we can add? Should we use an aquarium vacuum to clean the algae off the live sand?
