Hi I am a newbie with a 75 gallon reef tank for 1 1/2 years. In the past six months the algae has been getting worse and worse. I had a thread that got closed and it gave me a lot of good advice and asked some questions of me that I never got to answer and so here goes.
I am going to read up nutrirnts (advice that it's mostly about them)
My nitrate level is 0
I have not been using RO
, but have stated now. I was using tap water with Prime for top up and weekly in my water changes salt to 1.024.( I have an anemone, open brain coral and a sun coral and read they like a higher salinity) I have been doing 15% wc
once a week. Should I try twice a week?
like a phosban reactor? I just got one about 1 month ago and put Rowa in, but I have to get more Rowa as I didn't get enough. (The city I live in does not carry it so I have to travel to get it)
I do have a skimmer.
I will feed every other day now even though I worry I am starving them. I am sure my clowns won't be happy as even now when I come near the tank with out food I am sure they are telling me to go get some and if I don't I'm sure my female is trying to nag me into it. She's delighfully bossy to me and her male.
I keep my lights on for 9 to 10 hours.
I hope I have answerred all the questions everone asked. I really apreciate all your help. I have learned so much since I have joined the site.
