Hello, I just started my tank tuesday and I have that brown algae all over.  I have a 150g with a 20g refuge and 40g skimmer area.  From what I know (which is very little) is that this is a Diatom Bloom that happens when you start a new tank.  I heard that it is a good idea to put in cheato right away.  Is this a good idea or should I wait?  If it is a good idea does anybody have some that they are trimming back.  I heard this stuff grows really fast.  Someone in the area of Syracuse maybe?  Or semi close.  Thx

Welcome akite7!
 
You are correct in your thinking. You may also want to post "Looking for macro algae" in the Buy-Sell-Trade section.

Welcome akite7 to a wonderful club.
Here is what a customer said while on hold Oh my gosh! Did you open the door? I told you not to open the door. Dre is in here completely naked and he's got freak'n Macaroni and Cheese in his hands.
