Hey reef team, I've got a 25 gallon innovative marine AIO tank. I've been dealing with a bit of hair algae growing on my macro algae, as well as a ton of bubble algae growing on the rocks and frag plugs. I just tested my parameters and currently Alk is 7.5dkh, Ca is 750, Phosphates are 0.0 and Nitrates are 0.0

All were tested with Hanna checkers, with the exception of calcium which I tested with Aquaforest kit.

Obviously I have to have *Some* level of Phosphates and Nitrates if I'm dealing with algae, so is it showing as 0 due to my filtration and MacroAlgae?

There is a pretty sizable amount of Red Gracilaria honestly.

Filtration includes a IM UV Sterilizer, IM manual fleece roller, a Protein skimmer and media bag

Mb7 can even work with a shorter light/daytime period. The bacteria will outcompete the Dino's and win in the end. It worked for me :)
