Default stringy brown algae


I have upgraded my tank from a 120 to 180, went with Tonga branch rock aqua-scaping and i was going to go bare bottom. tank was running well other than I was having issue of low nutrients, running ZeoVit, but my wife gave me so much flack about the bare bottom so I put a thin layer of coral sand. Now I have stringy brown algae growing on every thing.

Two things I have change in past couple of weeks, the sand, which I washed till there was nothing left to come out of it. the other is i used a SenEye to calibrate my apex temp probe, which increased my temp by .8 degree increase. The algae is covering everything choking my corals, I am manually blowing it off and turning off lights except when i turn them on to feed fish. Lowered temp from 78.8 to 78.

Trying Cyanoclean, Coral Snow and Zeozym, and A Balance

Alk 7.3
PH 8.0 currently but generally 8.0 to 8.3 lights off to lights on
Mag 1340
Cal 440
Potassium 400
PO4 0 by Hanna checker
NO3 0 by Selfert

Zeobak 7 drops twice weekly
zeostart .75 mil twice a day
1.5 liter Zeolite

Sounds like Dinos, do they disappear while the night and grow back quick when the lights are switched on again ?

Please also post some pictures of them.
