Could use some help going forward
Ive had a lowish tech tank for the last year or so, but it has gotten out of wack and im trying to right the ship. Admittedly, i went cheap off the bat trying a bunch of DIY tech(co2, ferts) and i was having decent luck, but i took a family into my aquatics room after the harvey floods(i was barley spared) and couldn't stay hands on. Killed the Co2 and the lights and Co2 got out of control, and as you can imagine algae thrived. Did a 3 day black out, but ive still got some very slight hair algae on my Val, and some of my leafs still have some residual darker green algae.
Well, ive finally got the means together to have the right equipment, and do things proper. My GLA pro reg /atomic dif just showed up, and my Nilocg's Liquid NPK+M Macro/micro bottles as well. Im running a Finnex planted + and a Planted +LE over a 65 gallon tall tank.
Is the move to cut everything out that has any algae on it to start fresh, or will the tank balance itself and starve the algae out with proper nutrients and Co2? Im excited to have a hands off Co2 setup after all this time struggling with damned DIY baking soda/citric acid and crap needle valve.
