algae I'd please . getting discouraged


Seems like a different algae everyday. Bba ,gsa , and now this fuzzy stuff. Running pressurized co2 at 30 ppm. Dosing pps with a little extra po4. Finnex planted plus on eight he's daily. What am I doing wrong. Co2 is on a sylonoid and pH controller. Stays spot on 6.5 pH all day. Down from 7.5 when co2 is off.

try to lower the lighting from 8 to 6 hours and see if that helps, only algae I deal with anymore is BBA and i'm just living with it lately and weekly pruning crypts/anubias .

How good is your flow?

All that surface agitation and you still have good co2 levels you must really have it cranked up
