Yes, it was my light.
I have Maxspect 27" Razor 15,000K and no coral was showing growth, so I compared with other owners of this light fixture, and I realized that my Blue is way low...
(My tank is only 12" and light is above another 12")
Instead to of raising it up (65%) within (3 weeks +) I did it in 2 days ... Never knew what can happen :bigeyes2:. But let me tell you on the 3 day my corals start showing new growth, I was shocked! and on the 5 day my tank was covered with bright white fuzz.

After introducing flocanazole on the day 9 I see some big chunks of algae floating around my tank. I am thinking on the day 12-14 still going to have algae, but I'm hopping it will be almost dead and I can siphon it off the rocks.
Sand will be covered with more sand.

None of the cleaning crew are eating this stuff! Just walk over

Algae, is gone.
At least no new patches, I scrape off from glass, and it never grew back.
Some rocks clear up completely, some still have partial coverage..
Maybe shrimp or snail start liking it :)

Thank you all for all your input!
