Caulerpa light 24/7 or reverse?
I have had my tank set-up and running for a while now and i recently got some caulerpa in the sump, which i was lucky enough to be given.
I have heard that it can go sexual and die and then put back all the nasties that it has soaked up back into the tank!!!
I was told that you should have the light on for 24/7 and only on reverse cycle?
I see the benefits of it being on 24/7 as it will grow more and hopefully take up more of the nasties, and also it will not cause a ph
crash when the lights go out on the main tank.
The benefit of having it on reverse cycle is that you put the lights to come on one hour before/after the main light come on/off, so in this way there wont be a ph
crash in the tank.
I was told that it doesnt matter which way you have it as long as you 'pinch' it back every so often like once a week to once a fortnight bedending on growth.
So what do you guys do and what do you recommend?
