    I have also been battling this for a couple months now. It goes away using chemi clean but then comes back a couple days later. I'm gonna try cutting back on my light cycle and reducing the intensity. See if that works.

    Quick update: I took off the GFO and Carbon, and the diatoms seamed to be slowing down. Also the phosphates went up slightly and Nitrate is reading around 5ppm.

    Next I Scrubbed and shyphoned out as much of the diatoms as possible and that seemed to make a huge difference. I did this 2 days back to back as well as blowing off the rock daily and turning up the flow of my power head. So far I would say the diatoms have been reduced by a total of 95%.
