So I am having some green hair algae issues in my tank that are proving more difficult to rid then iv expected. My tank is 25 gallons reef, I have put Pura Phoslock in the tank 4 days ago and havent seen any difference. Iv done 2 50% water changes in the last week with little difference. My parameters are Perfect Ammonia, Nitrite at 0, Nitrate at <5ppm. other things I have done to battle this issue is added a Fuge to the tank with micro algae, added a Reef Octopus Bh1000 for the skimmer. Im really at a loss of what to do the only thing I can think of is my bio load is just to great. I thought it would be fine to have 6 fish in my tank but I think its just to much for that water volume.
Not that you have the info is there anything I should try to do before Setting up my 20gallon tank to put 2 of the fish in? In a few months Im going to upgrade my 40 gallon tank from freshwater to saltwater FOWLR
and then Ill have the 2 fish in that tank. I think Ill just get 25lbs of dry rock this week and start cycling the 20 gallon then when im ready to switch over to my 40gal ill have all the rock ill need. What do you think?
