    yeah, you could (potbelly <roflmao...had to leave that there, gotta love predictive typing sometimes.)probably opt for one of the 3x packages. that should be more than enough with your current crew and the extras john will hook you up with. Oh and they sell macro algea as well if you wanted to add any to your fuge.

    I would just continue to maintain that patience. I had the same issue for a month. Just keep fighting. It will pass over time.

    +1! Weeks will go by where you will wonder if there will ever be an end to it all... but then one day you'll look at your tank and wonder where all the algea/diatoms went...

    It will arrive. I remember getting home from work every night and syphoning layers of cyano from the rocks and sand. Almost threw in the towel, but I'm glad I hung in there.;D
