I only feed once a day, my lights are 2 ai primes that are on for 10 hours a day (I use the BRS settings) I do a water chance every other week, I use ro/di water I make with the aquatic life unit. It’s a 55 gallon tank and I’m not gonna lie, there are quite a few fish so that probably doesn’t help. I have like 10 fish. Most small other than a wrasse and a kole tang. My #1 priority is the health of the fish and coral so if something is gonna put them at risk I’d rather have the tank look bad. Thanks in advance!

That hair alage, diatoms. Usually new tank with high nutrients level, or something might died off from the rock
 

Have you ever had an algae outbreak so bad that you had to break the tank down and start over?
