My other tip is to only leave the blue lights on...not because of wavelength or anything, but because everything looks better under actinics!

You know I've tried everything for algae.  I'd recommend a tuxedo urchin and vodka dosing. 
My friend that bought your 120 had a 20g prior...was totally covered in algae.  I think there is something to smaller tanks and how quick the undesirables build up.

I simplified to a no-frills tank awhile back. I tried adding a phosban reactor and couldn't stand it, such a pain to change the media. I switched to a BRS reactor, and I couldn't stop it from leaking, so I just got rid of the concept altogether. So I have a bit of an algae farm now, but I'm happier with the lower maintenance, I just do once a week WCs and manual removal. I've noticed over time that the cleanest tank I ever had started with established wild collected rock. Every tank since has been base rock. Whenever I do a tank with new rock again, I'm ordering stuff from the ocean, maybe the Tampa Bay Saltwater guy that seeds/farms rock in the ocean. I only have two fish, a pair of clowns. My male disappeared suddenly, so I picked up a snowflake at Petco a week ago, instant change in the female's behavior. She stopped hiding in the algae constantly and now swims in the open and eats more.

This is possibly the slowest growing tank I've had. My green slimer has been basing for at least one year, and finally in the past couple of weeks starting going vertical. Probably going to start kalk on the ATO to try and help out a bit, but after my last WC my Alk was 9, my CA was 400, so it really isn't bad. Likely just more due to dirty water.

For some scale, the duncan on the left side has about 50 heads and about the size of a softball when it opens up. There are definitely more corals that an FTS can pick up. A decent Favia, a couple SPS, and some Sunny D zoas.

I always have to email myself my photos and downgrade the image quality and then save in order to post any photos here. Just seems like everyone else has there own way of trying to get images up on this site 
It's this plus a bunch of other reasons , mostly club members not updating or posting tank photos that has a lot to due with this clubs lack of interest getting new members and keeping this site up up to date.

The site imgur I believe allows for posting to forums with a link the same way photobucket did, and is free to use. I believe you can also post photos via the tapatalk app if you're using a phone or tablet.
