Hello all!
So I used to have a reef tank and had a very “text book” cycle, ammonia rises, then nitrite, then nitrate, then a big diatom bloom and a die off. This time around I had the same chemistry, but no diatoms, it went straight to a dusting of green algae. It’s been about two months and a week ago I got 2 clowns and still everything is stable.
Set up and maintenance:
10g AIO w/ATO
AI prime
A ton of marine pure in the back
Chemi pure blue
Weekly 50% water changes with ro di base
2 clowns as of now

Thanks in advance, Charlie
