It's been more than a day now since discovering the reddish/purplish spot on my LR
. Initial, observation with the tank, water is clear, no white things attach to the glass. LS
is not showing any carpeting characteristics of cyanobacteria. The spots are not multiplying and it remains in the area where it is initially found, again these spots are not slimy like a cyanobacteria. I keep in check the water parameters.
Most recent reading:
Ammonia = .25
Phosphate = .50
Nitrate = 20 ppm
Nitrite = .50
pH = 8.4
Temp = 76
Since the phosphate reading is .50, should I do a minor water change? same is with my other parameters. my nitrite is kinda high.
Taking a closer look the color of these spots is the same color as the underlying color of the current color of LR
which is white. I will try to post pics that have better quality.
Thank you again!
