OK, I give up.
If I start again, how can I make sure that I have killed all of the algae that may still be in the gravel, driftwood, plants, etc. Is there a way to sanitize everything to make sure it is a clean start?
I had a tank once that every time I tried a new start it produced Spyrogyria every time! No other tank did this. I finally had to get rid of the tank. I don't want to do this as I have too much money tied up in this system and want to replace as little as possible.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. My low tech tanks do fine. This is the first high tech tank I have tried and so far it's a disaster!
