Way to go 150EH!
That sounds like good advise, I've got an slow outbreak of brown algea and the plants are just doing ok. This shot is 19 days after planting and everything has new growth but has really just got started after a set back that required new impellers for my filters with one side almost comming to a stop I started to get a bacterial scum on the water, so I added a carbon pad thinking it would help but it may have just delayed things and helped with the algea. I'm going to start over dosing a little and see what happens, just till I build a little nitrates, but I don't have a full bottle or reactor yet so I'm taking it slow. My biggest mistake was not over planting from the start.
