  • Acros Green Tint

    Two of my acros have a slight green tint to them. Is this a sign of over feeding something?

    Thanks

    I believe its a sign of high iron content, do you dose iron at all? this could be the problem but im sure others will chip in..

    Cheers

        Hi Scott, excess use of the supplements[elements] results in a greening affect[darkening] especially, Fe & PIF. This is best monitored by a yellow SPS. Bob

          Thanks for the heads up Bob.

          I have been dosing PIF once a week at 3 drops. I dont know what FE is?

          Also making a post under my other thread of red algea about my newest readings.
          Let me know what you think.

          Thanks again

            Scott, Fe is the iron supplement in the Korallen-Zucht line. It brightens the greens, but if used in too hugh a quantity can result in excess algae formation & coral tissue darkening. Bob

                Hi Scott, coral yellow color to greenish also indicates waters are still too rich in nutrients. Bob
