    Hi!

    I have some problems with green fur algae. Everything was doing OK, an suddendly it appears. My tank info has the following parameters:

    - 100G.
    - 5KH, PH 6.6
    - 2gr KNO3 per day (8mg/ of NO3)
    - .5gr KH2PO4 per day (2.44 mg/l PO4)
    - 0.13 mg/l Fe three times a week (it is a micros compund actually).
    - 2 table spoons of aragonite added to the camister filter.
    - Very few fish.

    What would be wrong?. I got some problems with the CO2 that have rised PH to 6.9 last week, would it has to do with this?.

    Mariano

    Do not need that much ferts, add about 1/2 this for KNO3.
    1/4 for the PO4.

    You'll need to do some scrubbing and water changes. Make sure the CO2 is good.

    Just keep up of keeping the tank clean and well tended to.
    It'll pass or should if things are fine nutrient/CO2 wise.

    You can see Green dust algae methods here or Green water treatment methods here also.

    A mix of these methods will help a lot.

    Regards,
