Hi, I’m new to the hobby and I’m still just figuring stuff out. I’ve got this green algae of some sort and I’m trying to figure out so I can get rid of it. If some one can help me identify it and what should I do to get rid of it. Thanks.

Looks like some type of macro algae, possibly sea lettuce. A diverse clean up crew will enjoy keeping it at bay for you
I’ve got a pretty good clean up crew they seem not to be interested in it. I’ve got snails, hermit crabs, conch, urchin.

That is a good crew, I’m surprised the crabs or conch are not going to town on it.

Way too long of a lightning schedule! Bring it back to no more than 12 hours. And change filter floss every other day
