I bought a seachem silicate and phosphate for my 30 gallon planted tank. the parameters in my tank are 2.5mg/l for phosphates and 20mg/l for silicates. I tested my tap water, about 1.0mg/l for phosphates and 10mg/l for silicates. I think my silcates are too high in tap water. my tank is about 3 weeks still cycling so there is going to high silicate content from substrate/rocks etc, but 10mg/l in tap water I believe is too high causing a diatom problem. I doest not matter how much I change the water it wont get rid of silcates. How do I get rid of silicates with out r/o from tap water any help please?
