from the sounds of it its just your normal cyano algae. normal stuff happens in newly setup tanks. just syphon it off it will eventually go away.

how old is your tank btw?

pretty sure(soime one correct me if I am wrong) that there isn't much that will eat it. however it is just a normal stage for a new marine tank and it will go away eventually.

if it's the brown diatom bloom, well, my turbos took care of that fairly quickly. got my astreas afterwards so not really sure about them...

anyway...as to the ones on the substrate...whatever was left, I either vaccumed out or left my nassarius snails to move it all around and it eventually went away. of course, at the time I started using ro water from a water store as well so that could have been a factor Smile

and if it's red cyano bacteria that's doing it, which I doubt, over at n-r forums, they're talking about how a queen conch finished that all off quickly

all in all though, use ro water. it'll help a lot more in the future Smile
