Also I don't have flourish comprehensive. I have flourish trace, flourish and flourish excel. I don't have the comprehensive. Posted via Mobile Device
Good, thanks. Taking their data as accurate, one of these fixtures is equivalent in output to three T5 tubes, presumably HO. That is a lot of light. I'm not surprised you have all this algae
, it is going to be difficult to balance that light without going with dry ferts daily.
BTW, your "Flourish" is probably the Flourish Comprehensive Supplement for the Planted Aquarium
to give it the full name. "Flourish" is the large name with the rest below it on the bottle.
You are able to use only one of the two lights, so that is good. Follow my other suggestions--no Excel, Flourish Comp once weekly, Flourish Trace once, and CO2 diffusion with the light period. I would probably cut back the Flourish Comp from twice to once now that I know more about the light.
Give this 2-3 weeks. If the plant growth begins to really degenerate, up the Flourish Comp to twice weekly, but keep a close eye out for b rush algae increasing.
