Diatom showed up right around Christmas and was pretty well cleared up Jan 5, 2023. It got really bad for a bit but what helped the most was cutting back on lighting an getting a lot of Halloween hermits and blue strip leg hermits. Also hit the rocks with a toothbrush.

Put a bottle of purple helix coralline algae in today will update with results. Performed a 10% water change yesterday and all parameters are good.
I have a Red Sea 250 (not a Max) I put into commission on 3/30/22. Have been very pleased with my tank/reef so far. I utilized a pair of Red Sea Led90's for my lighting, a Red Sea 300 skimmer and added a homemade refugium 4 months ago. Recently removed the filter socks from sump....found that I really didn't need them.

Sounds like a nice setup, post a pic

Nice! What are you using for lighting? The stock bulbs?
Thanks! It’s a 6 bulb fixture but I’m only using 4 as I don’t need that much light right now. I would like to upgrade to LEDs eventually but need to do more research on them and figure out how to incorporate in hood as I’m a fan of hoods. Steve’s led conversions is a little much for me as it’s a retrofit.
