I decided since I've passed the one month mark I'll switch to every other week updates, as there's just not as much to update.
In the last couple weeks I've seen an algae outbreak, in the form of spirogyra and diatoms. Nothing to huge, but I would like to know whats causing it. Does anybody have any idea? Also is there anything I should be doing other than manual removal and excel dosings to combat it?
Also, it's been about 5-6 weeks since start up; should I be cleaning my filter out?
Thanks everybody!
