My equipment specs are as follows:
tank size-75 gallons
filtration-Rena XP 2(M) and Rena XP 3(L), Hydor powerhead at 550 gph, 1- 9 watt coralife turbo twist uv sterilizer(no longer being used)
lighting-nova extreme T5HO X 2, approximately 8 hours a day
co2-automated aquariumplants.com system
fertilization-aquavitro series, various root tabs, EI dosing methods
heating-300 watt hydor inline
dwarf hairgrass, needle leaf java, anubias nana, anubias coffee, baby tears, wysteria, myriophyllum aquaticum (parrots feather), staurogyne repens
3 roseline sharks, 1 peacock gudgeon, 1 pygmy gourami, 2 ottos, 2 white cloud tetras
Problems this far.......
I've developed all types of algae. I've developed cynobacteria on some of my dwarf hairgrass. I have some brown/blue green algae on some of my staurogyne repens. Dust algae on the glass is a constant battle. I just started spot treatment with excel on some of my problem areas and am trying a reduced photo period. I am also considering purchasing a second filter for the tank as this might prevent any dead spots not receiving enough flow.
Any and all judgement/advice/solutions are greatly welcomed!
