Back at it with Plants after 10 year break


I logged in today and created am account. I have been active aquarist whole time but decided to get back in to planted tanks.I have been quietly doing this with mixed success and decided to get involved here.

My current planted tank is a 150 gallon reef savvy tank filled to the 100 gallon mark. Lighting is 6x54 T5HO bulbs. Filtration is a Tunze Comline Riverpack and heating is a Colbalt 150 watt heater. I use a plant life Carbon doser device to a fritted glass diffuser. I use a PMDD variation

Current conditions are

0.2 ppm PO4
5 kH
10 gH
NO3 10-20 ppm
CO2 15 ppm

I just keep getting blue green algae sheets on the substrate. Not sure how to stop that yet but most plants grow and few melt. I am thinking daily doser pump for PMDD and more filtration.

I'd like to add a few photos but too much hassle with 1998 interface.
