I added cheatos from algaebarn like less than a week ago. My phosphate is 0.22, nitrate 13. I dose all for reef 24 hours dose of 1.33ml an hour and they are dying they are turning whitish yellow color and falling apart. Is my apex grow light too close?

You need cheatogro. I always buy it when I start a fuge. Use it for a few weeks then watch the cheato take off and don’t use it again.

Without it, all my cheato would die in the first week.

your numbers are good? When I pulled my cheato out last time my nitrates jumped from 2-5 to over 75.

I’d watch nutrients as the cheato takes off.
