Need advice on tank maintenance while on vacation
I'm going to be gone for almost three weeks by the end of the month and I've been trying to figure out how to keep the tank in shape while away.
My tank is an 85g open top with medium to high lighting
The thing is, I have a tight fert schedule, if I miss one day BGA and GSA start taking over. The caretaker of our building is going to be watering the plants in our garden, but I can't expect him to fertilize my tank also and do a good job.
So I thought I'd:
1. Reduce lighting to 3 x 70W HQI 6h/day
2. Reduce CO2 which is at 6bpm to about 1-2bpm
What do you guys think? Will I be coming back to an algae farm? Or will I be able to pull it off?
