Red algae?

Post by Crozema »

Hey guys and gals, I have some sort of algae growing on my rocks and on the acrylic of my tank. Maybe diatoms? Not sure never had this before. I have a 90 gallon with 8 cichlids, I have been feeding once every 2 days with small weekly water changes and I am not noticing a difference. Tank has been running for about 2 years. Fx6 and a sunsun HW3000 for filtration. I am by no means a pro and always trying to learn so if anything so far seems off throw me some advice. Some videos I came across on YouTube suggested phosphate levels could be high. I'm on a well so perhaps it's from that? Should I try adding phosguard to my filtration? Not sure what causes this. Picture attached. Thanks!
