yeah but doesnt gfo take out silicates and phosphates??
Yes it will, that's why I said GFO is always a good idea. But its not needed for diatoms, they will go away on there own even if you dont add GFO. So either way will work.
agreed..good luck to the original poster with the problem..
and also pgoodsell thanks for that info as well since i am going to be adding a new aquafuge and now know what to expect..thanks
Thanks guys that helped alot, i thought it was diatoms but the hairy-ness of it threw me off. Ill hopefully add some GFO soon!!
I see alot of people who are under the misconception that the only draw back to feeding too much is leftover food. What they don't seem to realise is the food eaten turns to poop which turns into Nitrates. Overfeeding is never a good idea.Once every two or three days is more then enough to keep most fish happy and healthy.8)
ro/di water i hope?
Very good point I knew that would contribute, just thought left over food would be more of an issue. i only feed every other day, sometimes 3 if i forget. but i appreciate the input Vinny
Here's my ugly sand bed 5 days after the first pic. I hate it
There seems to be some sort of hair algae growing on top of the diatoms that quite frankly make we wanna scream. Im waiting for a job to call back so as of now im stuck with it with no money.
