Thanks for the help....I was planning a 25 % water change this Sat.
This is my tank story????
Set-up tank with pre-made water from LFS
.Only had 25 lbs. LS
in it for week. Ordered 15 lbs cured LR
and put it in tank on day 7 of cycle.It Had lots of die-off so i figured i would just cure it in tank.Ordered 45 lbs Fiji from Liveaquaria and 10 lbs Gulf LR
.com. Ran all pumps and skimmers for the week and recieved my LR
(45 lbs) on day 14 of cycle and cleaned it and put it in tank.On day 15 received LR
.com order (10 lbs.) had a bunch of life so i just dipped in used tank water that i took out of tank and put it in tank. Now the ammonia spiked out about day 10 and was down to almost zero before the new addition of LR
last week. Now tonight my ammonia,trites,trates are all spiked once again and there is little green blades of grass like algea growing on all the LR
along with it turning Brown,and the brown growing on the tank glass.I have not done any water changes just top offs using ro
water from LFS
. Tank is starting to look pretty ugly.I run actinics from 8am-5pm then full spectrum and actinics from 5pm-10pm then 4 lunar lights till the following morning at 8am. Should i have the powerheads blowing directly on the LR
? Did i basically start my cycle over last Thurs when i put in the LR
? Sorry for the long post.
