Interesting to hear Rod. Iím currently going through a similar problem. Started an inert frag tank to avoid pest introduction (matrix, ARM media for filtration) and a year in still getting these mini cycles with similar algae problems. Iíve noticed that my tester frags shoe tissue recession when ever the algae starts to die off, then there will be a period where the coralline starts to come back but soon enough the algae dominates then the cycle starts again. Suspect that bacteria hasnít fully established and may take longer in inert setups. Large water changes along with GAC helps to some degree.
