So I'm back after about 7 months. That's how long I've had my first saltwater tank running. I've been seeing hair algae growing on the rocks over about a month now. It's gotten worst now. And also I've been seeing this stupid blackish algae coming on the sand. My light hours r from 12 noon to 8pm. Here r a few pics and here is the reading on my last 2 test.

Sunday March 2nd 2019
Ammonia - 0.25
Nitrate - 0
Nitrite - 0
High range PH- 7.8
Phosphate 0 ppm
Calcium- 20 drops 400ppm

Saturday March 16th 2019
Phosphate 0.25
Ammonia 0.25
Nitrate 20 ppm
Nitrite 0
PH 8.8
Calcium - 300

Despite elevated levels in the last test I've been experiencing this algae prior. My last phosphate test was today and it's good. (Check picture attached). Please advise. Also sorry for this long !!

I have a few snails. Some of them go on the rocks . Most on the glass. I have one hermit crab. I'm more concerned about this algae on the sand than anything .
