i tried feeding smelt and i started to see white slimy looking algae on my wet/dry intake box (the acrylic box that is inside the tank). I cleaned it off, but it is still coming back. All water perameters are perfect and it doesnt seem to bother the fish but i still am a little cautious about it.

P.S. I stopped feeding them smelt

I feed my nattereri smelt all the time and have not seen that type of algae. I wonder if the algae is a by product from your water source. It seems everyone has different water parameters, and maybe you have something feeding this algae from the source water. Just a guess,
not sure. I do have a ramshorn snail which leaves some strange white stringy slim on the intake of my power filter.
