So the 40 breeder is just covered now with brown and reddish surface algea.
The stats are
40g , 25g sump
Running 4 weeks
Ph is high for me , most my tanks sit around 7.95
My dkh is always low between 6 and 8 mostly 7.
What should I be doing here?
My main display is
45g jbj AIO
Running 13 months
Dkh alk 6.8
My calc is high over 520 I just th I nk my salt is that high and nothing takes it out. I thought the reading were bad but after several tests on 2 kits its still reads over 530. I think it has to do with the balance of other elements.
Should I add something for alk. I want to do a two part but not sure what brand. Was thinking red sea products so I can use more of their other brands as well smoothly. Also considered making my own soda ash.
My main goal right now is get the tanks cleaned up, clean glass, clean and clear water with stable parameters. Just not sure how. I have been focusing on nutrient removal and algea removal to start. I’m dosing 5 mls of vibrant each week after a 10% wc
