125g long
40gal sump
Vortex skimmer
Lps
Alk 7.9
Cal 450
Mag 1400
No3 0
Po4. Have small amount of algae
1 foxface love
1 yellow wrasse
1 flame hawish
I feed .5 cube of mysis and close to 1/10 of an algae sheet daily. Is this to much food? I want rid of the algae.
15 gal water change weekly with ro/di
Thoughts?

Do they eat the food within a minute or two? I've always thought if they finish it quickly it's not too much. Perhaps unless they're getting plump [emoji16]

What kind of algae are you dealing with? Does not seem like overfeeding.

Yes it is all gone fairly quick except for the algae sheet
