Over the last week I seem to be getting a lot of algae growth on my glass I have to clean it every day .the system has been running for about 3-4 months now. I have done my water tests and the results are as follows:
Nitrate 10 (seems to be creeping up, always used to be around 5, high considering I did pwc
3 days ago?)
It's 155 ltrs and i have 10 kg's of live rock and a 3" DSB
I run a deltec mce300 HOB
skimmer with filter floss on the outlet to stop micro bubbles and fluval 205 canister, I still have the foam pads in the canister, is this and the filter floss the likely cause of the nitrates? And my algae growth?
Any thoughts on this would be great. I hope I've posted this in the right place? I'm new here and this is my first post :p
