Well the algae in my 29G has finally gotten to me. I took out just about all the coral and moved it to my 38G tank. The only two I left was the Xenia (mainly because it is all in the nooks and cranies of an algae ridden rock) and a red mushroom that firmly in place. Another concern is for my clown fish who is in love with the hammer coral I took out. Also does a lettuce nudibranch need a lot of light? I couldn't remember if they got any food from photosynthesis. I changed my lighting schedule to 4 hours a day to see if that'll cut it back (hair algae with a touch of cyano
) In the past weeks I took out the bioballs (replaced w/ rock rubble), changed to carbon w/ phosphate remover. I also started out this tank with well water, all RO
now. I'm hoping knocking back the light will help wipe out the hair algae quicker. I also have some chaeto in there, will that survive on 4hours a day light? Thanks for any info you can give me.
Oh, ammonia and nitrite 0, nitrate around 10. I realize the algae itself skew those results since they are surviving by consuming something
