have been battling hair algae for some time now..Tried everything!
reduced feeding, Increased skimming, using ro
water, frequent water changes, reduced photo period, addition of larger clean up crew(including lawnmower blenny that doesn't mow
) physically removed almost all of the algae, but it just comes back. water parameters are fine, 0 phosphates, 0 nitrates. everything seems right, all inhabitants healthy and happy. have recently thought about adding a u.v. sterilizer. two questions..
will this help my situation
will this harm my corals (currently only star polyps, shrooms
, and button polyps, more to come once this problem is solved)
Also, if anyone has any input as to why i'm having this problem, i would greatly appreciate it
