I've also developed some very light brown algae...
Probably diatoms. Normal in a new tank. They will go away eventually.
And then the cyano comes. Cyano, thou art a heartless *****.
Yep. I consider myself lucky if I can stay a half step ahead of cyano.
Update. I've got nitrites and Nitrates climbing quick.. but my ammonia is still holding steady at around .25 - .50 should I remove and rinse all my sponge filters?I have one on my overflow.. one down in the sump and one on my mag 7 pump
I'm not sure why I'm making it so complicated this time around LOL. I think I got in a little bit of a rush from the excitement!
Remind me, what is the size of your tank, and how much rock and sand? Of I'm thinking right, you have a lot of capacity in there. If so, the sponges won't make much difference either way. That ammonia is a concern. I don't know that you can trust your tests.
90 gallon + sump. 100+ dry rock. 60 lbs sand. I tested my freshwater cichlid tank to make sure my API ammonia kits is good, and it comes out perfect clear yellow 0.
Tank is still going through its cycle. You're disturbing it too much. Just wait. Also get better test kits. Maybe take water to a lfs see what they get.
I took it the other day and they were using API for everything also... same results I had
