Tank takes a full 180 "HELP"
So in about a week my tank has gone from good to literally, please excuse my language, but to [censored][censored][censored][censored]. The tank was going great, plants where growing and spreading rapidly but, after my weekly water change it just went down hill. Only things I changed was add root tabs. A day after the water change I had an explosion of brown hair aglae, the stringy hair version and the spotty kind. The next day staghorn and then BBA.
Here's my set up.
- 45 gallon tank
- 2X39W T5HO right above the tank.
According to hoppy's graph i have high light.
- pressurized CO2. Drop checker is always a yellowing green color
- also have plenty of water flow.
- dosing EI for ferts plus root tabs
Oh and the tank has been running for more than a month.
Any help will really be appreciated!
