Are you using RO
water for top off and changes?
If not, have you tested for phosphates?
Can you have SG
tested by someone with a refractometer?
salinity higher than 1.025 can lead to exsessive algae growth
Never heard this before. Where did you read it?
Also 60# of LR
is a bit light for a 55. Recommended is 1Â½-2 pounds gross gallon of volume (82-110 pounds of LR
). I'm guessing that the fuge with the macro is helping to keep the parameter in check.
I'm no expert in these areas so hopefully some of the advisors will chime in.
I saw your other post that explains your SG
and temp changes. I'm interested in hearing back in 6 months on well everything is doing and if you notice increased growth.
