Hi all! I just did a huge tank overhaul about four days ago on my 29G reef and replaced the sand and removed a bucket of hair algae and scrubbed down my rock as well as doing about a 50% water change. It was good for the first three days or so but the algae is coming back. I need advice!
This is the tank right after the clean up.
This is the tank currently:
There's bubbles on the rock that come and go.
It's growing on my corals inhibiting their growth.
It's kind of stringy.
So here is what I am doing:
I've mixed fresh salt water to do another water change on the tank tomorrow and am going to do another in another few days. I've also been running my blues for 10 hours and my whites for 8.
- Reef Octopus Classic 100 Hang-on-the-Back Protein Skimmer
- 2x Jebao WP10 Wave Maker Pumps with Controllers and a TC-4A Twin Dual Controller
- BRS Mini Reactor and GFO
I'm hoping these will help keep my tank in better shape but what my real question is - what else should I be doing?
I am at my boyfriends right now but as soon as I get home in about half an hour I will post the water parameters.
Thanks in advance. 😊
