So I just came home to a very cloudy tank and a refugium full of white caulerpa algae. I am very confident it went sexual and the cloudiness in the tank is a result of the released spores. I have 300 gallons in my system and can only make so much RO waters what should I do to help solve the problem?? Will this kill my SPS??

It will cause some damage, this is a main reason I don't have a lot of culerpa's in my system... All you can do really is a big water change and throw some chemi-pure in it, sucks this happen to your system,I would also throw in some red algaes to help out ...just my opinion and what I have done in the past when this happen to me ... Good luck

Algae spores creat oxygen demand. If fish are OK, then no worries. Use activated carbon to remove cloudiness from water.
