Brad,

I have looked at all your photos and I am not sure what you are looking at.

Could you post a jpeg here with an arrow to it or something else to indicate it?

:D

I've been told it's dinoflagellates. It's like brown stringy stuff that bubbles stick to. Got a 1/2 liter of phosguard going in a mag 350 but dunno if it'll help if the phosphate is tied up in the algae. Any thing else I can do?
Thanks

Hi,

Get a good nutrient export program going, probably raising some macroalgae to harvest and remove it is the best way.

Some small "spotted" conchs (Strombus maculatus) are good herbivores on this stuff.
