In all honestly the single sollution that did the *most* good was #3 ;)
#1 and #2 are more of a trivial matter. Unfiltered tap water allows more
of the nasties to enter the tank can potentially cause more problems
later. Phosphate removing resins are usually a short term effect. Key
being you should look for the source of the phosphates i.e. over feeding,
over stocking, over fertilizing, etc..
After battling algae for years, I finally have it under control.
Fiddling with CO2 rates, fertilizer doses or reducing light
didn't help. Here is what I did:
1. stopped using un-filtered tap water. Started using water
filtered through a faucet mounted PUR filter.
2. Added Seachem Renew to the filter cannister. It supposedly controls
3. Added more Japonca shrimp, and added a couple of false SAEs.
