I am no pro by any means but I would suggest riding it out for a little while. New tanks in my experience tend to go thru some algae cycles. If you dont figure out what/why/how the algae is taking off then it will repeat even if you tear everything down.
Like I said no pro here but there are others that with more knowledge will help if you get them some more information.
List up your water parameters (every test you have available), light duration/intensity that your currently using, what/if your dosing anything.
Grab a few amanos and nerites if your so inclined, they will help.
Thanks for the reply! So much so appreciated!
Yesterday, I ended up going to the store buying some Cuba tissue culture, and thought let me get aggressive before I tear everything up. So thatís what I did! I actually tried the H2O2 dose method and it did seem to work. I did have one neon tetra die, but luckily all 4 of my Amanos are looking good as ever this morning.
I did the 50% water change, and things are looking a little better this morning. When the tank was half full I replanted the carpet.
As for parameters, I am going to retest in a little bit. Iíve got the usual hardness, ph and ammonia kits.... things have been normal every time I test but Iíll post my latest results today.
For dosing Iíve got flourish root tabs in there and have been using the fluval liquid ferts.
On to lighting. I really think this is my biggest issue. I am running my AI Prime Freshwater ramping up and down an hour with about 8 hours at full power. Not sure if youíre familiar with this light, but you can really customize itóI just donít know how much is enough light without going too strong.... the plants seem to love it (and so does the algae lol).
Hereís a photo just taken... a lot less algae. In the left corner under the co2 diffuser there is a ton of algae on the s repens that is driving me crazy.... it has just carpeted so nicely that I donít want to mess around with it too much.
