I am a beginner so take what I say with a grain of "Salt". Pun intended.
From what I have read your plan seems pretty extream. I do a 10% PWC
every weekend and I believe that shouls be enough if you do everything else correctly. In my 45 Gal
, I starterd with 20 LBs of LR
and 10 LBs of base rock all on top of 40 LBs of live sand. My water parameters have been steller all along. I had the beginnings of a hair algae problem but took the advice I found here. Cut back on the lighting, do not over feed and get some good hermit crabs and snails. That did it just fine. Then I found some bublle algae and based on advice here, I bought 3 emerald crab. 24 hours later, bubble algae completely gone.
I believe you will find that regular 10% PWC
, adding the live rock, reducing the lighting and feeding and making sure you have a good clean up crew will take care of all your problems.
But then I am a newbie.
