I'm not sure if tannin has something to do with my algae bloom or it's just a coincidence. I added a big DW this monday and now I'm getting what I think is fuzz algae or hair algae. I also noticed a few spots with BBA, GSA and Blue-green algae. I'm dosing MMN mix and Iron chelate 13%. I have P by seachem but I don't know how much to dose. I might start dosing N,P,K
instead of the MMN mix. Need help! I turned off the lights. I'm planning to turn it back on once I figure out whats causing the algae bloom. I did some research and most lead to nutrient imbalance.
I mix a half cup of MMN and a teaspoon of iron chelate in a liter of water. I dose 4 drops per gallon. I also dose excel every time I do a PWC
. I tried spot treating some algae but the bloom is just too fast to control. I run a CO2
system. Drop checker's color is greenish yellow. Should I turn off the CO2
for now? Attached are pics of what I'm dosing. Thanks in advance for any help.
