The red slime is just a pain in the butt. Had an algea bloom after my Ro
& Protein skimmer went down a couple days of each other. I used some water from a watermill express ( supposed to go through 11 different filtrations including Ro
) and found the water quality is terrible there. I tested their water and it had a tds
of 50+ and phosphates of 10.0+. Since then I have done 25% water change with quality water... ordered new Ro
Protein Skimmer has new pump and up and running. Phosphates media bag has dropped phosphates down to .25.
