So it has not even been a full week and my hair algae is gone completely. Here is what I did. I turned all of my lights off for two days. Now I have cut back my 10,000 k
daylight lights to just 2hrs a day and will increase slowly to 6 hrs. I have added fluval phosphate/nitrate remover. I will after the weekend take this out and add my Bulk Reef Supply GFO
. Feric Oxide. It is better tahn fluval IMO
. I had high levels of phosphate and have now gotten rid of them. I have also added some trochous snails and 2 conchs. Everything is doing great. I had no coraline algae die off. In fact the tank looks healthier imagine that.
Before: Notice almost no coraline growth
After: Look at all the purple...Looks healthy huh! IT IS
The last pic was taken with actinic blues on as my white(10,000 k
)dont come on until later in the day for only 2 hours. Next week I will step up to 3 hours.
