Ronaldo, regardless which one it is I would start doing water changes and add KNO3 only..
I would replace 100% of water once a week.. it all depends on how big your tank is..
Also, i can't see if you have anything agitate the surface.. you need to have oxygen... There are very few alges that thrive in well oxygenated water.
I think it's more important for you as it looks like new setup.

Hello, Mr. Christian. Could you tell me how to improve the concentration of magnesium ion? Which chemical should I use?. You said before the calcium chloride will burn microsorium,how about magnesium chloride? Can I use it? Is there anything better to recommend?

Dolomite, magnesium carbonate, will add more magnesium to the water, while also raising the KH of the water. Dolomite dissolves very slowly, so there is definitely a limit on how much magnesium you could add this way.

Hello!
I tried the MCI in my tank. The method helped me to determine the dosages of NO3 and PO4.
Recently I brought into my aquarium Spirogyra. Please tell me how to win it. I tried glut, hydrogen peroxide. Either it does not help at all, or it helps, but not for long.

Tu4kin, welcome to APC! Remember, it is always best to concentrate on growing lots of healthy plants, instead of concentrating on fighting algae. I'm not sure if this MCI process has ever been widely accepted. I know I don't use it.

I have been trying out this method for a couple of months using seachem nitrogen, phosphorus and tropica premium (micros) with some success.

Thank you for sharing this.

Extremely happy with this method as it greatly reduces the level of husbandry needed. My glass stay clean all the time.
