    Hello Gerardo, welcome from Mexico,

    Have you measured nitrate and phosphate? Please show a picture of your aquarium.

    good afternoon I appreciate you taking your time to answer me, I did 2 phosphate tests with different marks and they are at zero, nitrates are at 5 ppm. but I have problems with algae Walon the other parameters are stable, it is very rare as I put resin antiphosphate and improved my corals since they were dying. that could be happening? Thank you

    Clean strings with fingers in your kitchen.

    I think you can increase feeding now. Try feeding twice as many per week (if you feed 1 time/day now, do 2 time/day).

    See how it appears in 2 weeks.

    How many fish?
