it grows anywhere, but the sandbed is siphoned weekly and glass is cleaned, so it does not accumulate. This white furry stuff has been growing for about 2 months, but barely noticeable until 3 weeks ago it got a little worse saw a bubble or 2, now its growing everywhere light hits, bubbles everywhere.

is it consuming zeostart for food?

my parameters seem normal, other than alk consumption is high lately, and calcium is not being used much, my ph is normally between 8 and 8.25

my tds reads 0, skim wet on overrated skimmer, sump is mostly clean, little bit of mulm and detritus here and there, change my socks daily, feed rinsed meat only once per day normally, and half a sheet of nori occasionally more.

it could be consuming any nitrate or phosphate and giving false readings im not very sure.

so far ive reduced my photoperiod to only 6 hrs with all 8 bulbs, and im going to try to blow it off and siphon it during my water change tomorrow and use coral snow daily.

i do not have a microscope to check for dino

I have no experience with is but it does not look like Dinos from the picture. You can try to switch off the water movement completely for 15 minutes to see if the stuff does from long string with air bubbles starting to move to the water surface. If that is the case it might be Dinos. Dinos also disappear completely while the lights are off growing back very quick if the light are switched on again.

Is that the bubbles that disappear entirely at night or does it all disappear?

The air bubbles do disappear over the night whatever it is, Dinos or other algae so I was asking about the film itself.

So than you can be sure those are no dinos which is basically not that bad. From the pictures it looks like any kind of algae to me but I do not know which ones ? Does the stuff does grow furthermore ?

My tank was exactly the same and I have been battling it for over a month. I stopped zeostart and reduced my bac dosage and within a week it's almost gone. Once it's completely gone I will re-start but in smaller doses and less frequent

If you can blow them off easy you can rule out any kind of macroalgae however before treating it in any way it would be good to know what exactly it is.

Could it be Chrysophyceen ?

I couldn't find much on chrysophyceen in English, but I think it resembles chrysophytes, but I'm not 100% sure

I dont know what all this gibber jabber is about.
From someone that dwelt with the exact same algae and beat it.
Go get some garbage bags and black out the tank already.
I tried everything; blackouts where the only way to defeat it
