Nitrate are around 10 ppm
but I have to geta phosphate test kit this week-end. This QT
is only 3 months old. It's a SW
tank kit I got from Big Al's. I know it's not the greatest show on earth, but it should do until the main tank is ready. I tried feeding my 2 fishes only once a day and cut light to the max: about an hour in the morning while the fishes "wake up" before feeding, and then about 3 hours in the evening without food. Been doing this for about 2 weeks now, but it seems that this stuff is still growing.
I also read info that turbo snails will eat this red hair algea, so I'm also planning to get a couple of those on the week-end. Thanks for your input, it's appreciated.
