I'm gonna jump in here cause I'm having the same issue. Sorry in advance, I'm not trying to to Hi-jack. I've got a 10 Gallon with 20 lbs of LR
and 10 lbs of LS
. One Maroon Clown, a Zoa cluster, small candy cane, open brain frag, two mushroom frags, and a yellow eyelash. I feed once a day and had the lights up pretty high last week. I went away on vacation and only the sec at the office put water in the tank. Sparkletts Distilled Water. I came back after being away for a week and brown algae every water. My LR
is brown and there is some on the LS
. It's growing on the glass. I feed once a day. I turned the lights down about half of what they were so slow the growth of algae. Any help appreciated.
