In stage six it says you get green and string algae. It leaves you hanging. how long before the algae goes away? Do i do somthing at this point to get rid of the algae?
I have a 55 gal. Someone told me today not to do a sump and overflow but to use a skilter instead to prevent flooding problems. Any thoughts
Just order my first saltwater aquarium and would like your feedback (My main goal is to have as many colorful fish as possible and I may mix some reef on it but not many as they need more care)Sticky for the beginner forum.

My local rep recommended not to use the lighting in my tank until the cycle is complete to reduce the algae and so far it has work out fine, tank running for a week and not algae at all, after testing the water it looks like the cycle is almost complete and I could start adding a cleaning crew but I will be out of town for a week and my rep recommended to let the tank cycle for that week and them move forward with adding stockWent with RODInG. TANK IS Cycling now with 155 lbs dry rock and 100lbs live sand. Have dots of red,green,and grown algae popping up every where.
