Ok, yes that is very high considering your hair algae is also harboring a lot of No3 and po4.
I scooped out 3/4 of that bag and put just 1/4 of it in my reactor. Don’t want to strip it too fast, right?
In theory, the algae dying should continuously supply new PO4 into the water making it difficult to strip it out too quickly. This is normally more of a problem in a cleaner tank.
Keep a close eye on your coral as they will tell you that you are stripping PO4 out too quickly faster than any test kit can.
I would not worry about stripping it too fast. With that po4 reading and the amount of algae present, there is a abundance to removed. I would be aggressive and monitor your po4 frequently
I’m traveling Wed-Fri so I’ll go slow for now and bump it up when I’m back and can monitor things.
Can this be used if you are already running a bacteria driven tank like zeovit?
Yes, totally fine
WHAT IS IN THIS STUFF!? One dose yesterday and the weird brown algae has started to lighten and recede just a bit! I'll post again after a week, hopefully with pictures.
I posted this picture on Sunday. Today is Tuesday, I added one dose of about 14ml last night on monday. So one dose and one day later these are the results.
Still got a ways to go, but its definitely cookin.
Looks like your off to a great start
I'm pretty sure it is snake oil. It's shocking how effective snake oil can be at treating algae!
Probably just coincidence
No kidding. I've concluded that the root of my algae problem was rusty snakes.
Can you use this with a cannister filter please
Yes, you can.
J and L aquatics in Vancouver sells it and ships it Canada Wide. I bought it from them and can recommend it whole heartedly. Has taken out all of my ugly hair algae that broke out after I moved my tank. Very happy with the results.
It is ok to dilute this in RO water and then set up a doser to add a small amount each day?
It is best to add it as one single dose
