The Dreaded Hair Algea
I have that nasty thread algae. I am beginning to suspect the nutrients that
have been adding each day to my 54 gallon freshwater tank are not in
My PMDD follows the Sears/Conlin formula found on the Krib as follows:
1 tblspn chelated trace mix from Homegrown that I believe contains:
1 tblspn MgSO4
2 tblspn K2SO4
1 tblspn KNO3
I have been adding 6 ml daily.
Weekly 40% water changes.
pH 6.8, KH 5, CO2 23 ppm, Nitrates 0
Lights 3 watts/gal for 12 hours
Is it possible that the daily Fe is causing my algae?
Should I mix up the trace elements separately and use them as required
instead of daily?
Would I be better advised to use Flourish once or twice a week to supplement
the Flourite in my substrate instead of the Homegrown?
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
