  • just into 3rd week, green film/algae

    hi all,

    am now going into my third week so will drop my dosages as advised. No probs so far except have the bright green algae/slime in places. is quite tough stuff doesnt wipe off like slime would. Any ideas?

    cheers

    Hi Barry, the "neon" green slime is a visual cue of Start2 excess. It also appears in AAHC excess. This is easy to remedy by with-holding Start2 for the next two scheduled Start2 dosings.Then reduce your Start2 quantity by 50%, when you resume dosing Start2. Also, if you are using AAHC hold this for the first 4wks. on ZEOvit. Bob

        Whenever I have had the tough hard to remove green algae it has always been as an immediate result of high nutrient input, e.g. overfeeding, mass snail deaths etc.

        Do you feed your corals?

          Yes, Barry, the reduced dose should be fine for your system for the immediate future. Bob

            Orion,

            No, not at all. I have lost a couple of chromis though, found them in the weir. Could be that i suppose?
