test for phosphates and start gfo if found, check to see if natural sunlight is hitting the display, shorter photo-period, 3-day no lights, macroalgae like chaeto in the refugium are all weapons you could attempt.

Depends. To much we don't know to begin to give advise.



What are your Nitrate and Phosphate levels?

Are you using good RO/DI water ? then do some large water changes.



How are you managing nitrate reduction currently?


Algae is a sign of poor water conditions, where your going wrong is unknown to us.
