What causes it to grow is high nutrients and phosphates. So skim wet to remove more nutrients in the water and do water changes with good RO/DI water and get some kind of phosphate absorber. Cut back on feeding so you arnt adding extra waste into the tank to break down and cause problems like this. I feed my tank every other to every 3rd day.

I have been doing what you suggested for about a week and I am wondering if anything is helping. I even added a phosphate reactor the other day. Frequent 10-20 % water changes. Use good R/O for top-off. I use catalina water as my usual saltwater. Cut back on feedings to every two days. I'll try anything
