I tested again today. Still between 0-0.1 ppms, a definate light green color but not quite 0.1 ppm
I just recently bought this new bucket of reef crystals and would hate not to use it. Is there anything I can do to salvage it? I have no idea if its possible to decrease the amount of phosphate showing up. Im at my wits end. I've now got hair algae along with green algae growing.
At this point should I try a phosphate removal product? I thought PWC
would really help, no luck so far. Maybe do a larger PWC
? Ive been doing pwc
of 10% every week for the past 6-7 weeks.
source water ( ro
with salt) 0-0.1ppm
tank: ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate about 20ppm
maybe its actually the nitrate along with the trace of phospate. a bigger PWC
might help? Should I do a 50% change for now ( along with 10% every week) or go with 20% every week instead?
Any other suggestions welcome!
