I buy it from LFS it’s RODI but I don’t know what kind of saltI would definitely suggest a larger clean up crew for that size tank. Reefcleaners.com has great packages customized by tank size,with a nice assortment of different types snails. Not sure if thats something you'd want to do right away but I could be wrong. Im sure there is someone here that can give more insight.
Where are you getting your saltwater and r/o water from? Could be high in silicates. And if i remember correctly... Cyanobacteria loves silicates.
I have another questionI buy it from LFS it’s RODI but I don’t know what kind of salt
Also about 3 months ago I tried vibrant for several times with no effect
The sand bed is only about 1/2” nowI have another question
Given the cloudy water should I do a water change and also should I stop adding the +NP even though I still hale 0 nitrate?
I again wanted to thank everyone for the great advice and helpI would stop dosing. Pretty sure the cyanobacteria is feeding off it. Which is probably why your test come back as 0.
I agree with a good water change And check out the algae forum.
Welcome to R2R. Hope you sort that problem out. Lots of knowledgable and helpful people here who will support and advise you when needed.Hi All
Any help would be appreciated
I have a 40 gallon breaker withe a homemade 20 gallon sump with a sock a skimmersfloss and carbon
The tank has been running for 6 months
I have always had algae problems brown and green
About 2 months ago most of the brown algae disappeared
I now get a turquoise green covering on the crushed coral it appears in one day after cleaning
The next day it turns black and has strings
In 2 days it will cover the bottom
You can not remove it with gravel cleaner
The gravel is matted together
I usually scrape the top layer off
I have had 0 nitrates from the beginning
Decided to add NP + 2 days ago
The first day the water looked not as clear as usual
Yesterday I added it again
This morning my tank was soo cloudy I could barely see the overflow
Any help would be greatly appreciated
