Hi fellow reefers!
Asking for some assistance in identifying and destroying brown algae that’s been covering my rocks, sand and corals.

Please see pictures below.

if the pictures are blurry, the algae is a brown jelly-ish nuisance. Shortly after I brush it off it returns.

The symptoms do. Microscope is about £30 on eBay for a used one. Nothing fancy. Analogue 400-1000x will do
Will look into buying one. I’m assuming you take a sample, smudge it on the sample glass and examine?
Do you have a picture of dinos through a microscope handy?
