Update: Watch the video in 1080p, much better!
This is just an update on my tank. after setting up this tank in december 2012, I ran into diatoms algae and then green soup. After using a uv filter for about a week the tank cleared up. This iswhat it looks like now after a few months of running with no problems. I added the oto's to help clean up the brown algae. they are doing a great job!

Hello, all. I need some help understanding what is going on with my tank..I cant seem to keep the water clear. the only time I have clear water is after a 50% water change and only last a day or two then everything starts to turn green.
I started with a fish less cycle and that lasted all most two months. So the tank is about 3 months old now..
Tank info below:
Mr Aqua 33.6 24x18x18
one t5ho 24w 20" above substrate for 10hrs
two 36w compact 20" above substrate for 10hrs
Flourite Black Sand
10 harlen rasboras
4 cherry shrimp
patches of HC
Giant hair grass
a few other plants i cant remember the names.
co2 drop checker is yellow/lime green
I dose seachem ferts (Flourish,Flourish Iron,Flourish Phosphorus,Flourish Nitrogen,Flourish Potassium, Flourish Excel, and 5 Flourish tabs were inserted) I follow the seachem dosing guide for a 30 gal tank. 50% water change weekly.
Thanks for looking and I would love any ideas you may have. My cats would love to see water cleared up so they can get back to staring at the fishes..
