Been a month and I'm starting to do trimming on the macro algae. Nice part of have a sump, I got a second tank to float the clippings in.
After doing some reading on macro algea and cross comparing Brightwell Aquatics products, I have decided to try the micronutrients and axis(carbon source) in my marine tank to promote healthier growth. I made sure no macro nutrients were added to the system because that could cause nasty algae outbreak.
In my research of Brightwell Aquatics products, I found his nitrate source is Sodium Nitrate, commonly referred as pink salt. This salt is used as a meat preservative. You can find this salt in the baking area, sports stores and in your favorite hotdogs.
