Question Shall i water change?

I have just completed the 14 day set up and have 2 x clowns and a couple of frags to test the water (no pun intended) I have now reverted to the general guide that states the dosing for the next 2 weeks until the first change of Zeovit.

At what point shall I do the first 5% water change as it does not say? Do I wait until the first change at week 4 or when?

Also..... I have a small forest of Green Algae around and inch long but really thick; how long will this take to go away and will it go naturally?


Water levels below if it helps?
No2 = 0
No3 = 0
Ca = 630
Mg = 1400
Ph = 7.2
Cl = 0
Kh = 7
Sg = 1.026 (35ppt)
K+ = 430
Max razor LED's at 60% for around 9 hours.

Thanks

Usually it is fine to start with the regular water changes if the first 4 to 6 weeks have passed however starting sooner does not cause issues.

The algae growth is normal for a new tank. What are your phosphate (PO4) levels?

If you do a water changes earlier try to extract the algae. In the past I would brush the rock with a stiffer bristle cleaning brush as I help a siphon vacuum right above the area i was cleaning. This will help remove the algae and the nutrients it holds from the tank. (I was always careful to rinse the brush with RODI water before placing it in the tank, this helps remove any foreign material that might be on the brush) This method can be difficult with only two arms I suggest a second person to help position the vacuum if possible. the algae in the sand should be easy to siphon out.
