My Tank + Fogginess/Green Water Algae Question
This is my first attempt at a planted aquarium. The tank was first filled 24days ago.
55gallon (21"deep), 60lbs of flourite, Eheim ECCO 2235 canister filter w/purigen, four 65watt power compact daylights (on for 10 hours a day), pressurized CO2
Seachem Flourish ferts with alternating macros and micros every other day.
Cobomba, Hornwort, Moneywort an Amazon Sword and an Anubias nana
7 oto cats, 1 cherry barb
Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5ppm
pH 7.4, KH 16
ABout 5 days ago the tank started to become cloudy and has become progressively worse. At first it seemed milky but now it seems more green. The plants are still growing, cabomba adds almost an inch a day as does the hornwort. The moneywort has visible growth and both the anubias and the sword have new leaves. I also have a good bit of algae growth on the wood and glass. Nitrates just started showing up about the time it started to look cloudy and I did the first water change on the tank yesterday. If this is a green water algae bloom what could be causing it and how do I fix it? Thanks
