First, the vital stats:
10 gallon tank, about three months old.
One juvenile sixline, one very small yellow watchman goby and pistol shrimp and two large cleaner shrimp.
CUC includes 5 florida ceriths, 2 large nerites and 3 small ones, four nassarius, one trochus snail, 4 dwarf blue leg hermits, one scarlet reef hermit, one mexican red leg hermit and one turbo snail.
The turbo snail is the only one that seems to make a dent in this stuff.
I'm feeding as little as possible. Everything is consumed in about 3-5 minutes.
Actinics come on at 7am. Daylights on at 8 am. Daylights off at 5:30pm. Actinics off at 6:30pm. LED Moonlights on at night.
Parameters: Alk 7. Calc 460. Mag 1410. Phos 0. Amo 0. Nitrite 0. Nitrate 0. Temp 78.6
I'm running chemipure elite, purigen, a fist size ball of chaeto and for the past two weeks I've been running a phosphate adsorbtion media and changing it every couple days. I change the filter floss every two days.
The stuff doesn't really seem to have much of a visible structure. Closest thing would be GHA, but it's not very green. It's more of a brownish green and doesn't really look like hair per se.

Any thoughts? The turbo snail loves the stuff, but can't quite keep up with it.
