Hi guy's and girls...
I've red bamboo algae and red birds nest algae which continuously keep getting covered in what I believe to be Cyano
, does anybody know how to possibly combat this??? It's starving my red algae of lighting, I've had to prune out number of dead pieces of recently, my birds nest just falls apart no matter how gentle I am when I try to disrupt the Cyano
off of it. Very annoying.
isn't out of control and has never ever taken over my tank and only actually appeared when my Xenia pulsing suddenly deteriorated. This I believe was a combo or carbon & my RO
system needing new filters as the tds
level was 5/6 now at 0 again, in future it'll go no higher than 3.
Here's a few pics hopefully you can see. If you need to know any other tank specs just ask...
Lighting is 50/50 blue/white T5 and a daylight tropical T5, time cycle 4pm until 4am. Temp 25c.
Stock: Batfish, 6 strawberry top snails, tiger cowrie snail, 2 algae hermit crabs.
As you can see my sand hosting what believe is Cyano
.. The only Cyano
within my whole 3tank setup.
In the pic below the bamboo has been cleaned and is now in my sump tank for experiment purposes tbh.
Also any suggestions for the lighting best suited for red algae??
Cheers all, karl.
