I grow a lot of SPS
, so I have been using a dosing pump to add tiny amounts of Kent Trace Elements to my reef. Seems to promote good coral growth, but have seen a real increase in red algae. I also micro dose 2 part cal/alk
to keep those values high in the aquarium. Do you think one or the other has contributed to my increase in red algae? I know MrX isn't fond of trace elements (since you can't really practically test for them), but I thought I would experiment a bit.
