my 55 gal SW tank has recently been receiving a large amount of brown algae lately. my nitrate level is at 20 ppm and i cleaned all my equipment and set all things in working order. 40%water change w/RO water n' lights are on 8 hrs a day. still in less than 2 days a large coat of brown algaeforms all over the tank, like someone spreads cinnamon all over the place. any ideas? ohh, and is 20 ppm far to high for the tiny soft inverts that come along with live rock? thanks :D
How strong is your lighting? How many hours do you switch on the light?
Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to
I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
