Got to use Cyano Clean 2 drops, Bio-Mate 2 drops, Coral Snow 4ml, dose it once together at night, the result shows in the photo taken this morning. Seems working well in progress.

If you have observed a decrease I would recommend to continue dosing the mixture daily for lets say about one week.

Yes, will keep updating this post.

This is the result since first day dosing that mixture. Seems really working!

BTW, have no idea why the PO4 had been increased up to 0.1 ppm.

Maybe its because of that I turn down the flow rate as 600L/h, 5 times per hour refreshing the 120L Display tank?

It might have something to do with the reactor flow. You can try to dose 3 drops BioMate every other day for some time if you already have it.

Also have you noticed the increase of PO4 since you start to treat the brown stuff with the mixture or has this started before ?

Increase of Po4 might be the dosing of Cyano Clean or Bio-mate?

I just stopped Start3 daily dosing and will reduce the lighting time from 10 hours to 8 hours daily.

After 3 days, it looks not that much but the film is still strong. Will try doing 3 drops bio-mate every other day.

Got a suggestion from a friend, had done for 4 days already.

Did everyday dosing 3 drops Bak, in the lightinng time, 3 drops Cyano Clean low lighting time(which is about 8-10 hours later than dosing Bak), 3 drops Bio-mate at late night with Coral Snow. Feeding fishes with liquid food 3ml/ day at late night, 6 times dry food equal 24 hrs, seaweed 5-6 pieces every morning. The effective result shown after three days obviously, the brown film almost gone now. Will keep this dosing schedule couple more days until next water change. St3/Sp/Food/CV had been stopped for two weeks, started to dose CV with snow at the 03:00am by auto dosing pump with stirrer after autoZEO reactor self clean. All lives looks happy, water is christal clean.

PS: skimmer works out much more waste than usual days, dark, sticky(I set it to dry skimming) but not smelly. Flow rate is back to 1200L/hour since the first day with the upon dosing schedule.

Will keep posting the result.

This the strangest algae treatment recipe i have seen yet...its confusing to me how much nutrient is added to the tank during the treatment yet at the ssme time the dosing is to reduce nutrients... when reduce light period, you effectively reduce all the inhabitants metabolism, which means nutrients will not be consumed as fast. Which means it will add to po4 no3 over time.
whats the wisdome from all this feeding during the treatment?
Whats the target algea?
My fear from for u here is you will suddenly have a spik in pi4 no3 that will hurt the coral and throw the system off balance.
Please do update us ...good luck
