How much rock? What kind of substrate?
The more info the better, and any pics would help too.
Edit: Also what kind of water and salt mix.
I tested the ammonia levels and the read 0 ppm
, I checked the nitrite and nitrate levels, which were 0 for nitrites and nitrates were at 20. Also the ph which read a 7.7.
Also, I tested the salt levels with a hydrometer and they read 1.022.
I'm currently using a 24" 17 watt T8 coral sun bulb, which I know is prob the reason for the algae growth.
An aqua clear 50 gal
. mechanical, chemical, and biological filter.
The skimmer is a Fission nano protein skimmer for 30 gal
I currently have about 40 lbs of live rock.
About 1" of live coral sand.
I'll upload the photos in a little, thanks
I'm using filtered water and also put dechlorinator in it as well, I prepare the water to the same salt levels and temperature to that of the aquarium before adding it.
I'm currently using PetCo premium marine salt mix. Please let me know if I should change that.
