Blue green algae and coralline. Both great.

I did brought my nitrates ( 5 ppm from 20) and phosphate to ( 0.25 from 5 ppm ) i usually did water changes to get it around those parameters but not this time. Don’t have any corals atm. I heard soft corals also reduce nitrates and phosphate. I’m not so sure about that.
