I'm no high tech expert, but u should be dosing full EI fertilizer to the plants have the food they need to grow with the amount of CO2 is in the water column. Otherwise the plants will not keep up

I stopped dosingso I could evaluate the algae issue. Increased co2 a little and it's almost gone. Point being I felt like it was important to have a baseline.
