Quick help needed, please
Getting some hair algae and spot green on rocks. From Rex's guide, I see I need to add phosphates, reduce food and add some excell. My C02 is down, probably because I added a H.O.B. filter for added water polishing (adds water current/splash).
Here's my tank readings (MY TARGETS ARE IN RED)
pH= 6.8 (Target = 6.8)
KH = 80 ppm (4 degrees)
GH 160 ppm (12 degrees)
Kno3 = 15 ppm (20 ppm)
P04 = 0.25 mg/L (?? target suggestions?)
N02 = 0.1 mg/L (?? target suggestions?)
C02 = 21 ppm (30 ppm)
(1) how do you convert ppm to degrees for KH/GH, or what should the ppm target be?
(2) suggested targets for P04 and No2 and how do I convert mg/L to ppm?
Any other suggestions, thoughts, comments on ridding the algae and paraneters greatly appreciated!
