Green eggs and bio flim

Currently our 40 gallon breeder has a massive hair and diatom algae outbreak. Of course this could have something to do with me running a filter sock and only changing it every 6 months or so. Or it could have to do with me feeding our gluttonous heniochous 5 times a day.

My Euphelias look horrible. Both the hammer coral (13 heads) and the large frogspawn are not extending probably due to algae. I am dumping in massive ammounts of Algae Fix and have begun to vodka dose. I will be upping the amount of live rock since the vodka will kill out my macro algae. I am planning on adding a carbon and GFO reactor. If all else fails I guess I will make the move to bio pellets in about five weeks.
