I need to get some advice on a few things going on with my saltwater FOWLR
tank. First I will give you all some specifics, it is a 63 gal
tank, light is standard fluorescent light with two 65 watt "daylight" and two 65 watt Actinic bulbs. Filtration is a pro clear wet/dry sump with bio balls and about five pounds of live rock fragments. The tank itself has about 15 pounds of rock. My water levels as of this past week were:
Nitrite-- 0 ppm
phos-- 0 ppm
My stock right now is two yellow tail blue damsels and two domino damsels. Which are very health and happy.
My problem is the rapid growth of algae. I think I have all types!! I am posting some pics of tank to better show what I have going on. How can I rid myself of this issue, which I have fought for almost two years that I have had this tank up. The only fix I have found is turning off the lights for several days, till the algae is all gone. I run my lights about eight hours a day.
