Help with Cyanobacteria aka BGA
Hello, first time poster here. I am more active on the planted tank subreddit but sometimes my more in depth questions get mulled over and this forum has helped me loads more in that sense.
To be brief, my tank is experiencing a huge BGA problem. What was once a few treatable spots of BGA has become a very noticeable blanket over most of my plants. I have found that the two most notable causes of BGA are 1) poor flow throughout the tank and 2) low NO3- levels. My tank has neither of these conditions--the most turbulent region in the tank is afflicted with the same amount if not more BGA than the rest of my tank. The specs of my tank are as follows:
Fluval Spec V
Finnex Planted + LED (6hr photo period)
GH 6 dGH
KH 5 dKH
What do you guys think?
