Alright so I'm in my office Sunday - Friday. When I left Friday, everything seemed to be doing well. Ammonia and Nitrite levels had hit 0 ppm
so I dose again with ammonia on Friday and Sunday. This morning I noticed substanial brown hair-like algae (which I believe is diatoms).
Here are my test results:
: 5.0 ppm
I don't plan on adding fish until January. Can I add a CUC until then to keep algae under control? Also, I know alot of people do a massive water change to get their nitrates under control after finishing the cycle but mine are at 5.0. Should I still do one?
