best water change regiment for High phosphates in 29gallon
I bought a phosphate test kit and found out why I am growing algae. I got a reading of 4, close to 5mg/l via the nutrafin po4 test kit. Today I did a 8 gallon water change to start the lowering. How many gallons should I change per day to get this under control? I also got a reading of 2mg/l in my 25 gallon, so I checked my tap water and the test came to less than .25mg/l. I feed the fish tubaflex worms twice a day. I guess I should feed once a day now. And any other suggestions would be great. Thanks a lot.
