[AGA-Member] Re: BGA Help

Hi Randy, 

I've cc'd the AGA member list so that others can add their $.02.  Cyanobacteria is almost always a problem of nutrient imbalance.  You didn't say waht your PO4 level was, but that would be the first place I looked.  The other thing that can cause a problem is areas where water movement is not good.  (which can cause excess nutrients to build up in pockets in the tank) a power head or two can alleviate that problem.

  Since you offered, I would like to ask how I may get rid of Blue Green Algae laying in sheets on substrate and plant leaves.
  PH 6.8 KH 4 adding CO2 16 - 20ppm NO3= 5 - 10 Have been adding PMDD, 2.8 watts per gallon 10hrs. 
  50% water changes weekly. 
  Your help is appreciated.
