I’ve tried to run a Tunze 3181 reactor running off of a manifold but my chaeto keeps melting and dying. I did the first batch from algae barn with a 12 hour photo period and it ended up melting. I got a second batch from a local reefer and dosed a bottle of chaeto grow (per the instructions over time) and it still ended up melting and dying. With what I had left, I tried increasing the photo period to 20 hours and it turned white so will try the opposite and reducing to 4-8 hours. Any idea why it keeps dying? I dose ESV Bionic daily and have nutrients (last reading was 10ppm nitrate and 0.3ppm phosphate).
