Established tank have been using a mix of lanthanum chloride and NoPox to get my readings under control as want to add corals but this time keep them!
Th kings where going well and Nitrate was down to 2 Phosphate 0.02 so I stopped using the mixture as primarily my Phosphate was in the 0.4 range so used the LC to bind the Phosphate
For last few weeks ( also run a UV filter) I have noticed brown algae/ diatoms in the sand/ glass also on the plastic feeding strip I use to run the filterd UV water into the tank
Now my readings are 7 Nitrate and 0 Phosphate checked twice using Hannah Phosphate checker, so
What do I need to do to bring them in synch and get rid of the small but noticeable areas of brown nothing has changed re light period using X15 light at 60 % A+B schedule my softies are growing like crazy but would like to get some balance back do I need to go back to LC mix . I am dosing 1.5 ml NoPox in 300 ltrs ( displacement) each day
Any advice would be appreciated
