The algae on the sand is very light, hardly visable and a brownish in color. The algae on the live rock is green. Bright green. I can have pictures up tomorrow morning since I left my camera in the car.

Sounds like your standard diatom bloom, which is good news. Keep it up.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.

Camera died, but I'll try and get pics up tomorrow. The bloom is all over the back of the tank. I got one of those magnetic glass cleaners and I have a little starfish moving along the glass. I got some empty shells from the LFS and one of them had a small little starfish thingy hiding in it. Its about the size of a dime and its been cruisin along. Quick little sucker. The hermits are swarming the rock. I guess they like the algae bloom.
