So I did a 25% water change, and scrubbed a good amount of the algae and diatoms off...to no avail. It's coming back.
Here are my options, given that I am at my wit's end:
1. I dose the tank with chlorine, and start over.
2. I tear the tank down, toss it in the garbage.
3. Buy some chemicals to treat the algae/nitrates in the water.
If I go with option 3, what should I buy, and what brand?
