I have alot of algae in my 75 tank. I have a coralife 300watt power compact light that is on around 11 hours daily. Is this the cause of the algae or what? What can i do to make my tank look better?
newly set up 75 gal SW, 30 lbs of fiji lr, 30lbs of lace rock, 90 lbs of course/fine argonite sand, rena canister filter, 48" 4x65 watt pc, red sea turbo berlin skimmer.
Inhabitants- 2 percula clown fish, 1 muchroom coral, 2 leather corals, and 2 mystery corals.
Unwanted algae is generally a product of excess nutrients in the water. Mainly PO4 is a large contributer. I suggest testing for PO4 and begin a frequent water change schedule using RO/DI water. Can you desribe the algae or provide a pic?
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
