I've had my tank running over a year with no problems. I thought I'd upgrade the standard hood with 4 CP lights built in for a new lighting fixture with 2 x 150w MH
. major GHA problems ever since!!
I know every will reply with must be too many nutrients, over feeding, more PWC
. My nitrates have always been around the 10 mark, 0 tds
used for pwc
and I only feed every other day.
Everything was fine with the compacts. Is it all about balance??
When everything was matched as new i.e lights, filter type, tank size, I never had a problem.
Do you think my filtration isn't coping with the extra growth that the MH
produce? It's just a wet/dry filter, no fudge or anything fancy.
I've been through 25kg of salt with PWC
in 4 months trying to kill this. Do I give in and put the old hood back on ditching the MH
?? I didn't have this problem when using the compacts.
