Ok I have a thirty gallon tank plumbed out to my main and want to add some macro algae. First off where do I get it? It may be at my lfs
and I have never seen it and have never asked. Do most lfs
carry this item?
What is a reasonable price?
Will it get sucked into the ph
I have for return flow to the main tank?
Flow is provided by a 175 gph ph
back to the main tank; to much, to little?
Do the micro algae really reduce nitrates effectively? I am starting to notice my nitrites creep up around the 10 mark for the first time and don't like it.
Wouldn't regular algae like hair and diatom accomplish the same use of nitrates/nutrients for growth in the fuge?
I have my skimmer in the 30 gallon right now should I put it back on the side of the main tank if I add any cheato? This is something I would rather not do but I have to I will. I have no sump to sit it in. I guess with the add flow of the skimmer there is quite a bit of flow in the 30 gallon/fuge. Good or bad?
