Re: [APD] algae new tank
on point with the hours of light. 6-7 minumum 12 maximum, Also check the
placement of the tank as related to sunlight coming thru a window. Just 15
munutes of pure sunlight will spawn algae growth.
Check the fertilizer to see what if any Nitrogen it contains. I tried to
find out on line but gave up. Sent an inquiry. will post the reply
Your Hyrgo should out compete the algae for nutrients if your tank is in
balance. No nitrogen and your plants wont really thrive. Many commercial
ferts dont include Nitrogen as it is assumed that the fish waste will
provide that element.
Had this explained to me this way.
Your light is like the accelerator pedal on a car. The harder you puch
and the longer you hold it down, the faster the car goes and the more fuel it
uses. Sooner or later you have a craxh. Your lights and ferts are your
fuel. Combine length of light period with lack of macro nutrients and you
will have a wreck ie algae.
