    Hi

    Isn't a big deal but i don´t like that slime of algae on the glass and leaves.

    You can see in this video

    [video=youtube;dJ6CgcK71UU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJ6CgcK71UU[/video]

    90 gallons tank
    24 W PL bulb Philips Tornado 8 hours day.
    Filter SunSun HW304B 550G/H
    No heater, where in Portugal is winter but temp in tank is 70 F.
    Water change at every 3 month with gh booster
    Dosing like EI but just once at month with NPK TPN and Flourish Iron

    Last time i make tests NO3 was at 40 ppm and PO4 at 2 ppm

    What is wrong ?
    Low light ?
    A lack of circulation ?

    What can i do ?

    Regards
