What size is your tank, water parameters, equipment including bulb type and how long has the tank been up?

30 g with 30 g sump, skimmer, t5ho 1 20" 65w actinic and 2 10,000k,s in a 48" fixture, it hangs off the side with the actinic lighting most of the tank wich is 36". Pars are all good, nitrates at 5.0 and phosphates must be in there because my macro algae grows in my small 24 hour lit fuge although the kit says 0.

So yes i have a nutient rich tank but not out of control by any means. I do 10%-20% water changes every week with a good siphoning.
