I have an irritans tank that is heavily planted with java ferns, anubias, and staurogyne repens. I am having issues with brown algae/ diatoms it doesn't bother the fish, only myself. Any suggestions?
The light is a single t5, coralife colormax 54 watt, 6700k, 48", 13 hours a day. I just added a third stage to my mechanical filter with a phosphate filter. I had been purposely overfeeding while cycling the tank. I have now cut back to feeding once a day.If you have a planted tank, its likely a lighting issue... how long are they on? what type of bulbs?
