Hello, I have been trying to run a 5 gallon refugium in a modified top off tank. I have attached pictures of my set up. I purchased a starter kit from Algae barn and set up in there. I have very low flow in the fuge. And run a ultraviolet light at night. My cheto never took off and now I just have this nasty algae mix that is like beads….and they stick to everything. The blocks that came with the starter kit just fall apart when I try to pull the bad algae out? I would like to start over but need to understand where I went wrong first. My end objective is a fuge that I can populate copepods to help with my reef and so I can add finicky fish. Thank you.
