I tell you having an ro/di is not cheap lol. Some people would settle for an ro water from the machine in the grocery store.

I finally started to win my battle with hair algae this past week. About two weeks ago I made it a point to pluck out unwanted algae. If the the hair algae gets too long your snails and crabs wont touch it. Second thing I did was to place my snails on the target areas. If you find them on your aquarium walls slide them off and put them on/near the areas of growth.

Hope this helps

My guess is that you have been using tap water and not realizing it by not changing out your RO/DI pads. I'd also change out the Phosphaguard for a straight GFO like Rowaphos.

where's me money
