I really think its safe to assume by now that in this tank, the combo: Meds&Carbon & 2xlarge w/c totally and completely threw this newly system soooooo outta wack that my best guess really only is now to LET IT BE and see what happens over the next few weeks.
Cause honestly this tank has cost me enough headache & work so far and I done everything to the best of my knowledge and everybody's advises and now its either gotta walk on its own on break down completely.
I'll keep up the ferts, excel & w/c but that is IT lol (anyone think me treating this tank verbally has any impact!?)
I think a good deal of your knowledge, so maybe you've considered this and have reasons for not doing it. Some petsmarts sell a 9W UV sterilizer under the name of "green killing machine". They come with a powerhead and are not terribly expensive. We put one in the 20 gal a couple days after starting it up, and also now have one in the 40 gal rescue job. Knocks out blooms very quickly.
