Diatom bloom on established tank
Our tank is about 4 years old and for the last couple months we have been dealing with Brown algae. Updated my cleaning crew, made sure protein skimmer is working, flow is good, refugium is clear, and water test are showing in a safe range. No new rock added all water comes from two lfs and is RO. Any ideas?

60 Gallon tank
20 Gallon Redugium
