    Welcome back.


    Remove the Denitrate that is the source of your algae issues since your phosphate and nitrate are out of balance. A 10:1 ratio of nitrate to phosphate is suggested. I use dry ferts from Green Leaf Aquariums and just mix them into a solution for dosing. DO NOT mix iron with phosphate as they will react together are precipitate out.
