Hey gang. I need help. Had this tank for over 3 years. I am experiencing red diatoms and green "slime" algea on my LR
. Heres the needed info.
-100 gallon reef.
-30 gallon sump/fuge
-1 Aqua C remora Skimmer (and recently cleaned)
-lots of circulation
lightening 660 watts
-150 lbs of LR
I have been trying everything possible to get rid of the above issues. I feed every other day - rinsed frozen food and very little when feeding. I have changed 4 of my 6 VHO
bulbs out in the past 1 month. My temp is until recently is around 80-82. I have since lowered it to 77-78 as I have heard higher temps are prime conditions for algea. I also have about 50-100 small naurissae snails as well as a few crabs.
I dont know what to do about the red diatoms and algea. I have been doing weekly water changes of 10-15% as well. Any suggestions?
