Last night, I performed a 10% PWC
, hacked as much algae off the rock as I could, cleaned the pads in my filter, and added a bio-bag with some phosphate absorbing balls. The next order of business is to clean the skimmer and give it another go. It already looks a ton better, just need to keep on top of it and remove the algae fuel!
Thanks everyone! Will keep this thread updated with my progress!
