So I started getting what I need for an algae scrubber. But today I trimmed my chaeto after 3 weeks of growth. Dang, I have about a gallon of chaeto pulled out!!!
I'm gonna dry it and then weigh it to see how much biomass I pulled out between July 5 and today. I only feed 1 small feeding a week, so nutrients out should be greater than nutrients in. I just hope the deer don't eat it while I'm drying it. Stoopid deer.
On the plus side, there seems to be less algae buildup on the sand since last week. I very carefully sucked up the algae on the surface without disturbing the sand bed much.
