Can you please redo the test ?

If the level has increased really lets increase ZeoStart to 0.4 ml 2 x daily.

If you own BioMate already you can additional dose 8 drops every other day for some time, should be helpful with the PO4.

What a beautiful tank! Very nice job on the aquascape.

I just started a 300g and I am am going through the same issues. It takes a few months to get it tweaked and stable.

Im again getting a glass film, and film over rocks with bubbles in it . After a zeolite exchange, issues seemed to come back over the last 3 weeks. I soaked them in rodi, exchanged 90% and have 1.25 liters in reactor. Reactor flow is 425lph, measured this again today.

The issues seem to be zeostart overdose, is it OK to use less than the amount I'm using currently?

The tank I set up in 2013 suffered the same problem I fought it using gfo and carbon but in the end had to do multiple blackouts. 2 days a piece.

I am not sure which kind of algae those are, first thing I would try are snails, please also post your full dosing regimen.

I have a turbo snail and 6 astrea snails, they don't put a dent in it. It comes back the next day or 2. Hoping it's not Dino. The algae had been growing for about 2 weeks without bubbles. The bubbles started this week and algae and bubbles are multiplying rapidly.

.4 ml x2 day start
4 drops bak 2x week
Coral snow 6ml x2 week
Sponge power 4 drops every other day
Just tried bio mate today for first time, 10 drops.

For a net water volume of 100 US gallons your dosing regimen is fine, there is also not a product which would fuel the stuff. Does this just grow on the coral branches ?
