    Algae just won’t go away

    Well tests came back nitrates 0 phos 0, so my hope is the green hair algae will start to die out as I starve them. Anything else I should be doing to reduce the algae?

    API, but I'm hoping the Nitrate drop has to do with full rear sump chamber cleaning, new filter media, multiple water changes, reduced (targeted feeding), and daily Red sea NO3/PO4 - X

    So will test again this weekend, things seem to be doing better, my corals are really opening up. I do have hair algae showing up, I’m hoping that if I can get my levels to the correct place it will go away. https://photos.app.goo.gl/8B8EBVGpXCYu3p2t9

    So had Modern Aquatics run my water Calcium was 400 DKH was 8.5 Nitrates were 80 so in addition to water changes, he recommended no3 p04 X from red sea

    So did the test, all water sources going in are 0ppm tank is still bad https://photos.app.goo.gl/uzMkbSZNenjadXPA7 Tested salt mix pre water change DKH: 10 Calc 320 also pulled all filters out, and did not realize how much settling happens in the rear chambers. So I went to town turkey basting https://photos.app.goo.gl/j1dRrDTYcpiA6LZx7 will test again tomorrow, and also try to go by and have Modern Aq... run a test for me

    What is safe to use to clean the ATO container and salt buckets?

    I’ll didn’t think of taking it in to have my water tested independently. I’ll do that and report back. Should I just test the tank water, or also my water change water to ensure it’s not my water source?

    I did, but I’m thinking of change the filters up to a more basic setup: Chamber L1 Floss -Phosnet Chamber L2 Skimmer Chamber R1 Floss - Carbon Chamber R2 Nano Spheres - replaces Refugium that does not seem to be growing much at all.

    25 gallon, currently I’m doing 3 gallons weekly, but I can increase for now to help drop it. Yes

    Algae just won’t go away

    So did a water test with new kits, I did not realize my old kits were expired, by quite some time. Here are my parameters Calcium 300 Phophate 0.25 ppm DKH=6 or KH 107.4 Nitrate 80 ppm PH 8.0 Ammonia 0 ppm Nitrite 0 ppm So looks like I need to get somethings under control, but I'm confused how Nitrites could be 0 with such a high Nitrate level. Any suggestions on how to get everything in balance would be appreciated.

    Well, it’s back. I’m going to try the Magnesium technique, and will be testing daily. I will let you know how it goes. The goal of this technique is to get Mag to 1500-1600 for 2-3 weeks.
