im very confused about whats goin on with my water. i have been battling algae for awhile now. when i used distilled water from walmart, i didnt have any problems, but i was tired of lugging water so i got my ro
unit up and running again. this seemed to be going ok, but i couldnt get ahold of the problem. it would come less and less, but still came. (i did have a bunch of snails die, which caused ALOT of problems, but i did plenty of water changes with the distilled water and it was a LONG time ago. i did 30-40% water changes every week for about 3 weeks or so) i finally got a tds
meter because i was confused. well the tap water tests at 288. i tested the ro
water and it tested 309. i changed the filters and its at 355 now. does that make sense??? im very confused. i feed every other day, sometimes every 2-3 days (i feed frozen mysis and formula one, which i rinse in ro
). my bioload is very light, only a yellow watchman goby and a maroon clown, along with about 10 hermits, 2 pep shrimps, and a cbs, in a 55. i have 30 lbs lr
and 30 base. please help!!!
