My work takes me away from home for up to a month at a time. I usually do 10% water changes weekly. So I get way behind when I'm gone. I have a hair algae outbreak bad. I've added some snails which have helped. My Nitrates had climbed to 70 after I got back. My phosphates read 0. I know these could be worse because I don't know how much is being used by the algae. My mag was 1200 now up to 1260 as i'm dosing w/ kent tech m. Alk was 7.7 and up to 8.5 with dosing. I was told by LFS that a reactor with phosban or rowaphos would be a good idea and could help. I don't mind spending the money if it will help. This is my first sw tank so I'm learning as I go. Any opinions on yes or no to the reactor would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
