I have been fighting this brown rust color Algae for the past month every time I clean it come back worse then before.
I have taken my LR
out and cleaned it by rinsing it off with the spray hose on my sink. Town Water.
55gal tank, Plenty of flow, mostly up and around the tank, not much pointed right on the LR
but it flow everywhere well only one real slow/ dead spot.
I have two power heads and a mag 3 for flow in the tank. HOB
filters flowing around 800 gph
. Carbon, Purple-Up, Reef Builder,"For Alk
", Calcium, coral-Vite, And some food for one toadstool coral and two mushroom, all Rather small.
Two sail fin tangs as big as the palm of your hand. Seven other small 1-2 inch fish.
I have three 40w 48 inch fluorescent, 03Atinic, Triton, and 20k. On for 10 hr a day. "I just switched them to 8hrs a day." with moon light at night.
What is it? What am I doing wrong? How do i get rid of it?
