    I see diatoms, Hair Algae and a form of spirulina.
    How long is this tank running?
    Usage of what light?
    What's your maintenance schedule and how often?
    HOB or sump filters with skimmer or without?
    Favorite flavor of popcorn?
    What do you use for flow in the tank?
    Do you feed the corals and if so what?
