I just started my new reef aquarium 2 months ago, and there is a brown algea on the sand, and a green algea on the glass, how do I get rid of it?
(I already have 4 turbo snails)
Also, is this a good setup?
50 gallon glass tank with stand
hagen fluval 304 canister filter
red sea protien skimmer(hang-on)
40 lbs of live sand/ 40 lbs reef sand
I am currently using 2 single tube normal output fluorescent hoods(better than nothing, right?) until I get a more powerful light.
I have not gotten a heater yet, because I have not determined what wattage to get.
What would a good light to get be?
(I want to get a light good enough to get most coral.)
(I don't want to get a metal-halide)
Is there any other equiptment I need?
I have the following Inhabitants;
8 damsels, 1 yellow tang, 2 clownfish, 4 snails, 1 coral banded shrimp.
I would appreciate any other advice for a begginer(my only other experience is freshwater).
