Side Shot of Tank

I realize there is some hair algae, you should have seen it before! I have new lights on it, and been doing a lot of cleaning. Phosphates and Nitrates/Nitrites are 0. So far the growth rate is cut back to about 1/5 its previous speed. Just my little bubble coral, candy canes, and my gramma in the background. I am hoping to add some hermits today to see if they can take the smaller stuff out. I just don't want them eating my coraline like they did before.

It was a tough battle with the H/A... We won the battle though, as I knock on my computer desk... We did water change after water change, removed rock and scrubbed... Then we took everything out of the tank, put all of the water into garbage cans, I scrubbed EVERY piece of rock in our tank with a brush, ran the water back into the tank through a Diatom Filter, removed the LSB and replaced it with CC... It was a nightmare... We had started the use of R/O water right before the big teardown, so our system was pretty much half and half when we did it... I will never be without an R/O unit again ... I will Never OVERFEED my tank again... Glad that you go your H/A under control, it's one heck of a battle...
