[APD] Slime wars, algea wars
Heres an update.
I have cleaned surfaces and plant leaves, made water changes and siphoned out debris. I set up a filter on my 40 gal that gave more flow and better filtration (ehiem prifessional, the small one). I reset my lighting to a 9 hour photo period (96 watt CP bulb) and I have CO2 from yeast reactors. I started dosing the tank like Thomas Barr suggested years ago and it shows promise of keeping the plants growing while the slime starts to go away. I use chemical powders I had purchased from Dave Gomberg. His kit consists of: KNO3, KHCO3, K2SO4, and CaMg.
I really need this tank to clear up and grow up. It is a lovely layout that I would love to photograph for the next AGA show-and-tell.
My next big job is the 90 gal tank. I am dosing it with the same stuff as the 40 gal. It seems to have slowed the slime down by quit a bit.
