Is it possible for the partially bleached to recover? Also, does anyone know if a product that can help get rid of all the green algae? I'll post pictures this afternoon, thanks.
Well the first thing you need to do is a full panel test. Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, temp, salinity, pH, calcium, alk
, and mag.
Second thing to do is a 50% waterchange. The algae is from a gross buildup of nutrients while youve been gone. Removing the nutrients will be you first battle alone with rebalancing out calcium alk
and mag through water changes. I would do a 50% change every couple days while also manually removing algae. The algae is going to be the prime source of nutrients until it is gone.
Also how were your fish getting fed?
