The big tank has been up for a year. The big tank has four Amazon swords, some broad ludwigia, rotala and jungle vals. I have a Finnex 24/7 and a four build T5. The T5 has on,y been up for three months. I didn't have any problems until I switched from a wet dry to a new FX6.
The small tank has been up for five months and it has a finnex ray for lighting. No problems, except beard algae that I controlled with flag fish, until I transplanted some rotala. Both blooms hit quickly.
I use Excel on water changes but not much else.
Need to get rid of this stuff fast. I've used a pyrogens filter in the past and could again but I need to kill the current bloom first. Thanks for any advice.
