Ok I have a 180 g tank it has been running for abt 2 months it has about 250lbs of lr
maybe more not sure prob abt 150 lbs came from my 90 g when I upgraded and the 90 was running for about 3.5 yrs and the other 100 was base rocked that I cured for abt 5 months prior to the set up of my 180. With this upgrade I shouldn't have seen a cycle and I didn't my numbers are as follow:
Nitrates below 5 ppm
Calcium 320(I know a little low I am dosing now)
About 3 or 4 days ago I saw an outbreak of diatoms and I can't figure out y. Any thoughts or advice how to fight them? The are even starting to choke out the few corals I have.
