just tested my water parameters.


Nitrates are at 0

Phosphate at 0.5

growth is looking amazing. A lot more green now.

re aquascaped too so I've been sifting my sand bed and getting a lot of waste out of there to be filtered out.

Not getting anymore hair algae growth in my DT

Growth is looking good, nice green hair algae, the whole screen is covered.

Water parameters are looking great, phosphate has dropped to almost undetectable.

Sifted most of my sandbed too by blowing it gradually with powerheads over the last week.

my skimmer is still running 24/7 , I wonder if I could just run the scrubber for a while?

Check out this growth!


Very thick, I'd say a quarter inch at least, like a carpet.

Just cleaned it off and re installed in sump.
