Ok, its been a while since I've been on here. I got my 30 gallon set up, I've got about 20lbs of live rock so far, I have a whisper 55 gallon power filter right now, I'm going to get a skimmer as soon as I can afford one, I've got a powersweep powerhead for a 75 gallon tank. Its cycled and I just added two fish the other day, everything is looking good so far. I have a little algae growing right now. I'm a little confused though, there is a few nickel-sized areas of red algae or something that is growing on the glass and substrate right under where my damsel usually hangs out, should I be worried?

It depends on what type of algae you are looking at. Red could be cynobacteria, or it could be coraline. We would need a picture.

A Whisper filter on a 30 gallon saltwater sounds like sure disaster in my experience. You need to very aggressively run activated carbon, replacing every couple of weeks, and clean those filter pads several times per week! The depletion of carbonates and damage to your buffer system with this setup will be difficult to control, especially with the amount of water a Whisper 5 turns over through those filter pads. Save quickly! You want a skimmer yesterday!
