My tanks 90 gallons and has 260 PC watts above it. It's about 1.5 months old. My glosso is growing straight up for the most part (not enough light?) and I keep getting more and more brown algae between the glosso stems. Could I still be going through the new tank stage? Will this work itself out? I've been removing the algae as much as I can every week when I do my 50% water change.
I've recently upped my CO2 and cut my ferts in half, tank gets 8 hours of light. XP3 for filtration. Glass CO2 dispenser, only dispense during the day.
Algae crew is only 5 RCS, 8 Ottos, 5 Nerite snails, a ramshorn, a growing legion of pond snails.
PH 6.6 (7.8 out of the tap)
CO2 about 50 ppm
PHO4 was at 5+ now between 1-2
After cutting dosing in half, I dose 3 times a week each:
1/2th tsp KNO3
1/8th tsp KH2PO4 (trying to keep this low, might only dose twice a week)
CSM+B 1/8th tsp (alternate days from other dosing)
I also have a fair amount of staghorn.
