well i'm about ready to give up this hobby really not happy
i spent $250 aus dollars on a new MH
to what i thought would help this little problem of hair algae but now my tank looks like a **** forest and to make it worse i've had a massive diatom algae outbreak so that mixed with masses of hair algae doesn't look good and the 10,000k bulb has no colour in it so it looks a greeny yellow colour which makes it look 10 times worse.
stupid thing is the test results
when i started this thread my phosphate was at 0.1 which is the lowest reading my test kit will give me
the test barely shows any sign of phosphate at all the water comes up almost clear so it has actually gone down since last time
ammonia again 0
nitrate again 0
and corals are absolutely thriving and as for over feeding well i haven't been home to feed them at the right time so they get fed probably 3 times a week and they get hardly any food at all.
i really have had it i've always had a struggle with this tank with hair algae but this time it's just go the better of me and i want to give up
so can someone please tell me what i'm doing wrong and why it is like it is i'm willing to have one last crack if not then it's finished.
