    Hello, My Tank Is Crashing. Everything Is Covered With Brown Algea And Growth Is Minimal. Everything Was Perfect For Months. What Would Cause It To Suddenly Go South?

    I Am Still Dosing As You All Suggested 1/2 Teaspoon Kno3

    1/8 Smb 1/8 Mono Phasphate

    6 Hours Of Light

    Good Co2

    Brown algae often comes from insufficient light, and you are supplying only 6 hours a day.

    I suggest that you remove the algae manually and increase the light to 10 hours a day.

    1/8 of K2SO4 wouldn't hurt things either.

    What's your magnesium and calcium look like?

    Any pictures by chance?
