Pics under white light would be helpful. Are you sure it was algae and not bacteria or other pest forms?

Welcome!

Sorry for your losses, but glad you joined and are hanging in there! You must have lots of BBA - Bounce Back Ability and that is a great thing for this hobby. The more info you can share the more likely someone will have helpful ideas so it doesn't again happen

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
