I get this brown crap on my glass all the time, it seems to show up as soon as I clean it off. I know it's some kind of diatom algae. My tank has been set up for 10 months now and it has not gone away. It just keeps coming, and I keep cleaning. Will this be a ongoing issue, or will this go away some time soon?
My lighting had been an double bright LED
strip, and it I only have it on for about 10 hours during the day, and it goes fully off at night. What can I do beyond keep cleaning the glass to get this to go away?
I have checked my tank water, and it reads.
My tank is in the basement so no where near an open light.
I do water changes 3 times a month of 15 gallons. I had to take off the double bright LED
today as it just died on me. So now it's back to normal florescent lighting with just one light in each lamp. Very dull looking! :-(
I have about 75 pounds of live rock, and 90 pounds of live sand. Two power heads for water movement, I do have one hang on the back Fluval C4 filter that provides more water movement on the top, I do have a Fluval 206 canister filter and a Reef Octopus HOB
BH 1000 skimmer. Needless to stay my water movement is fine! I clean each filter out once a month!
