    Dusko's Algae Guide

    Hi Edvert, I think I have fixed the issue. For some reason one of the apps on the page hijacked my page. By changing the template the issue disappeared ... and that app disappeared too :cigar: will have to change template on all the pages though. Just to add; I am not having any tanks anymore...

    Green Water - Dusko's lazy solution to the problem

    My drop checker is blue now. No additional CO2 and no algae still. Overgrown at the moment, I have to trim the plants soon.

    Green Water - Dusko's lazy solution to the problem

    Agreed :) This is a Hi-light Walstad method :mrgreen: Just to add; This tank has a 4cm layer of potting soil and is dosed 2 times a week with Tropica+ Note!!! During the GW I only disconnected the CO2 not the NPK/traces. I still dosed Tropica+ once a week.

    Green Water - Dusko's lazy solution to the problem

    I got a very bad algae bloom (Green Water) due to CO2 malfunctioning ( + 2 of my HOBs malfunctioning also). At first I wasn't sure what to do. I had very little free time and such Green Water case needed many water changes and adjustments. I decided to try something new :-) Instead of everyday...

    Green Film on Surface

    The root problem is the insufficient Eheim pump which circulates 250 gph (approx 950 lph) :) Your tank is 250 litres and should circulate at least 1500 lph or more (I vote for more ;-) ) I had that problem in several tanks and each time I have had weak pumps and very little or none surface...

    JBL Algol

    IME algae issues were always connected to insufficient water circulation (poor nutrient/O2/CO2 transport). As soon I upgrade to a stronger pump or simply toss in another spare pump to help the existing pump algae seem to stay at bay and plants start growing better. My tanks get good CO2 and/or...

    Dusko's Algae Guide

    :lol: :lol: let them come :twisted: I am definitely for dosing PO4. I have a few tanks where I dose Tropica Plant Nutrition+ and IMO it contains very little P (from tropicas declaration). When I dose TPN+ I also add a bit of KH2PO4 to spice things up ;-) I wrote about TPN+ not containing...

    OK time for an update all :D I edited my algae article and now it looks like this; http://www.aquariumalgae.blogspot.com/ I didn't edit anything under the individual algae description but will come to that also. So what say you? Kind regards, Dusko

    Dusko's Algae Guide

    :) No disrespect but PMDD includes so many nutrients :) I was 100% sure you referred to actual PMDD (all nutrients) over dose which might lead to toxicated biological filter. My bad! Maybe stating FeOOH-toxicated biological filters might avoid such misinterpretation in the future :) Any...

    Is a blackout necessary?

    I experienced Spirogyra in my 11 galls medium-light. This aquarium is dosed with Easy Carbo 5-6 times a week and Tropica+NP 2-3x a week. Planted mostly with Cryptos. The only plant which got this algae was a few remaining stems of Rotala rotundifolia which didn't show deficiency symptoms. Easy...

    Dusko's Algae Guide

    Yes I agree, maintaining good plant "diet" (regular nutrient dosing), good hygiene (WC, vacuuming, removing dead/old leaves, introducing shredders like shrimps and snails to help in nutrient recycling, clean filters), good nutrient transport (sufficient water flow/circulation, pruning overgrown...

    Dusko's Algae Guide

    Hi all and BIG thanks to London Dragon for inviting me to this forum. I am glad to see Tom Barr and George Farmer around UKAPS.org forum :D This thread will definitely move my lazy butt into re-editing this Algae ID article of mine which I didn't revise in a long time. First of all this...
