So I have diatoms going like crazy right now but I just noticed some green algae on the glass. It's like a thousand little hairs about 1/8" that are lining all the glass.
Is this unusual or is it ok? Should I scrape it off?

Scrape it off and suck it up with a syphon or turkey baster so it doesn't just land somewhere else and sprout again.

During a cycle - leave it imo - Its in the water, scraping it is goign to spread spores even if you suck it up.. let the cycle go through let the gha die off then proceed imo
I'm not feeding yet, nothing to feed lol
Won't be able to test till tomorrow but I'll look into it. I do have chemi pure tho

Thought you needed lights on to keep live rock bacteria alive?
Diatoms I expected, hair algae on the glass which you probably can't see were what I was worried about
