iam sorry to keep going on about the brown algea problem but it does not seem to be clearing up, had about 5 weeks now. i know things dont happen over night but i thought it might have gone a little.
done my weekly test today, temp 26c, s.g 1025, ph 8.2-8.4, nitrate 10ppm, nitrite 0ppm, phos 0.1ppm, calcuim 330ppm, alk
8.0dkh, mag 1170ppm. are these ok.
water but that reads 0.1ppm for phos, changed the DI
resin still reading 0.1ppm. asked the lfs
about this they said you cant test fresh RO
water. Why is this?
told them about my problem and would cutting the lights down would help they said if it is cyrano, cutting the lights back wouldnt help cos it does not feed on the light as much as other algea.
could it be another kind of brown algea apart from diotoms?
i feed the tank every other day with pellats, frozen brine, just got some cyclop-eeeze and half a sheet of nori.
iam very sorry to keep going on but you guys know alot more than me.
