First of: I wanna tank the one's that supported me so greatly via PMs during this hardcore outbreak in my 55g - you guys & gals rock!!
Now after first does it was time for a w/c last night and to actually look at my tank after 2 days black out and I have to say while I'm not 100% leased just yet, I am impressed!
After week 1 "fiddling" with it: Blue-green smear algae is totally gone :D no signs of hair algae any where last night. and the greater majority of staghorn has died off looking like gray dust and I vacuumed it out best I could yesterday and clipped about 4 leaf's total of plants.
What remains is the white cloudiness, which I am sure is simply due to re- cycling and bacteria bloom (that's exactly what it looks like)
I then added root tab's last night as well as the rec. dose liquid ferts (Nutrafin Plant Gro).
And I dosed the API stuff again as directed.
My review after ~1week after the hardcore outbreak with 4-5 different types algae: Its working well! While its not "all over" just yet it sure is getting there and its safe to say its looking much better by FAR!
I'll also have Excel coming in the mail today - Would it make sense to use it on top of what I already done or will that simply be too much then?
Now I also changed the lights - But i'm not so sure what would be the best so solution there, its 4on 4 off 5 on right now - What do you guys think?
