I got GreenWater in my tank!!!
Yah, well a few days ago I noticed that my tank was all cloudy, looked like a bacteria bloom. I let it play itself out, and it turned into GreenWater. I have read up about it a little and it seems I have similar circumstances as GulfCoastAquarian did in one of his posts awhile back. I recently added a CO2 unit and decided to clean my filter. Well, I rinsed off all of my media in clorinated water, so i probably killed off all the bacteria, which led to amonia spike and the emergence of the GreenWater. I have read about many differnt ways of combating GreenWater such as diatom filter, blackout, and UV, but I do not want to pursue those routes. I want to go the route of leaving it alone in the belief that it will clear itself with time.
Saying that, I want to know if I should leave the CO2 in, and keep fertalizing as I have been.
Reduce the photoperiod of the light, and if there is anything else I should look out for.
Also, I do not have a top for my tank, so should I replace the water that has been evaporated, or just let it sit?
