Ok I am having a serious algae problem. I thinks its my own fault. I wrote
a week or two ago (rookie needs help) I was using a phosphate buffer to
adjust ph. This causes algae bloom. ok stop using it do some water changes
easy enough:( well I think I have more problems then that I have a new
algae! :) It looks like black hairs growing mostly on plants, I read some
where that this is usually caused by excessive iron. I am using a plant
fertilizer that is high in iron. I can't seem to find a iron test kit
anywhere in the great state of mississippi;| so now I have green algae
growing all over my glass, rocks, and plants. as well as my new algae:) what
should I do more water changes bigger? I was thinking 50% once a week.
