I have seen hundreds of different ways to Eliminate diatoms from tanks. Our 28 gal exploded in diatoms. So for what ever reason I just shut off all blue lights and left on white green and red. Now 2 weeks in there is 0 and I mean 0% diatoms in that tank. So today I turned on the blue as low as it can go and I’m going to see if it flares up again or if I beat it I will keep you posted. Our 75 started getting diatoms soon did the same thing 5 days ago. No blue and have white red and green on and it has turned it from a brown hair algae to a green algae without the long hair. Going to leave that alone for another week then start introducing the blues back in slowly. I also turned off my refugium light in the 75.
