I just tested my water parameter and they are as follows:
75 gallon tank
Lights are as follow quantity of 2 85 watt VHO CFL pro start bulbs hung pendant style over the tank. They run on a timer with a 9 hours a day. Link to the bulbs is below:
Using RO water measuring around 2ppm tds. Using a 36 watt turbo twist UV sterilizer. Using an eheim classic 2217 with a pre sponge filter. Also using a magnum hot canister rated for 50 gallons.
I have a pressurized semi automatic CO2 system and my drop checker is reading in the green to slightly yellow. So my CO2 may be a bit high.
I dose using EI as follows:
Sunday...........50% water change. Add KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4
Tuesday.........Add KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4
Thursday........Add KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4
Quantities for 60-80 Gallons (can be added dry)
+/- 3/4 tsp KN03 3x a week
+/- ¼ tsp KH2P04 3x a week
+/- ¼ tsp (20ml) Trace Elements 3x a week
My plants are being covered in a dark algae my Ecocomplete gravel is growing green algae, and I have a mix of algae on the glass! Also my plants look as though they are withering. I just can't figure out what the problem is! Does anybody have any ideas?
