Default help with high light/high co2 tank out of balance = greenwater :( help

Thanks for the reply Tony.

I thought I set the tank up properly for no algae problems I heavily
planted the whole bottom with fast growin stem species from my previous
planted tank and they are growing like crazy. I have pressurised CO2
keeping the levels high and high light. On others reccomendations I was not
going to dose any nutrients till week 3 or 4 but the greenwater still
happened. I have no fishload in the tank at all at the moment and have been
trying Dominics methods but its just getting greener.. currently in the
process of dumping 3/4 of the water

Cheers
Jon


Well you just solved your problem. Fast growing plants, no fish,
high light, high CO2. I'll bet if you think about it your plant
growth has slowed down a lot in the past few days. You need to start
feeding the plant so they can out grow the algae.

Sure a UV will work. But you are treating the symptom and not the
problem.


Agreed. If you don't fix the underlying problem, you'll just be trading one
kind of algae for another.

Hi thanks for the imput guys.

Any suggestions of what I should do ?

I have all the PMDD ingredients as well as Flourish and Flourish Iron.

I have taken out 1 of the 30w bulbs so now i have 150w / 50gal and have been
dosing with 1/2 tsp of KNo3 and 2ml of Flourish every other day. Also once
a week 1 tsp of mgs04, some k2so4. The greenwater is so dense i can hardly
see 10cm into my tank but the plants seem ok.

Cheers
Jon

2 Words -

UV STERALIZER

I had the same thing foor 3 1/2 weeks - even with 3/4 water change twice

a
day for 3 days straight.. no help..

Added the steralizer... ran it for 3 days, did a 3/4 water change and im
back to crystal clear water... plants are pearling more since the light

can
get to them now..
