Well ive been doing water changes more often and cleaning the glass, but the green film keeps coming back. Would adding a skimmer help with the algea, by removing nutrients? If this will help I also need to know if anyone has suggestions for a hang on type skimmer, as I do not have a sump. I have considered trying to build a hang on skimmer out of PVC.
Ok, so we don't know that the TDS is on the RO water your getting. We have to know your phosphate levels, or we are just shooting inthe dark. These are your altenatives here, skimmer and GFO. Run a phosphate remover until your sytem is clear, then you should be able to remove it until the next issue. But yes, the skimmer will remove excess nutrients before they become an issues. Double your water volume.
