Noob to dosing needing advice for algae control
About a week ago I started fertilizing my 30g planted tank that is a month old. Currently following the Seachem dosing routine using Flourish, Potassium, Iron, and Trace. While I've seen positive changes to my plants I have also gotten a huge algae bloom. Mainly hair algae and green spot algae along with the standard algae growing on glass.
Here are my water parameters:
Nitrate: 0-5 (I know its low, I cant seem to get it up even though I have added fish)
CO2: 2-3 bubbles per second
Additionally doing one to two 50% RODI water changes per week dosing Equilibrium to 5 gdh
Should I keep following the Seachem dosing routine or am I dosing to heavily? The tank has got a lot of plants in it and I say 30-40% of the substrate is planted. I would love some recommendations as well as experience from people who have followed this routine.
Thanks in advance
