    So i said screw it as the algae after a day of scrubbing came back pretty hard, my thought was it might have been something leaching from the rocks which were kind of suspect in the begining...torn em all out replaced with new dry rock and a cpl peices of new life rock for seed. Had a bacteria seeded filter and the BP running already so shouldnt see too much of a spike....fingers crossed

    Quick update, everything was going good with the new rock, put a small frag acro frag in the tank before i left town for the week to see how it handles everything. Ive had a small diatom breakout but thats about all ive seen. Hit a max of .5 ammonia which has already seemed to settle out to <.25
