My tanks been cycling for about 2 weeks now. Amm. has dropped, Nitrites are at 0.3 and Nitrates are 50-110.
First question is Can I do a water change yet? Just to bring the Nitrates down.
Second is I have green algae on my rock and back of tank. is this good?
third. I have what looks like brown hairs sprouting from my LR
. is that what hair algae looks like?(each sprout has about 3-6 hairs)
Finally, I have what looks like some red algae as well, I guessing thats from the Nitrates being so high. does that sound right?
I'm guessing I'll have to reduce the lighting period from 15 hours to lets say 11-12 hours. I had it at 15 hours to help the cycle.
Any advice would be great!
