Temp and salinity are pretty consistent. The mushrooms near the favia (now totally gone) do not cover it or block light. Did a 40% water change 2 days ago, phos was still between .5 and 1 after. Have a 2 fishes 150 reactor coming tomorrow, now wondering what to use in it (PhosGuard, which I have), PhosBan? The amount of algae in the tank has always been an issue, but again I rarely run any kind of filtration and do minimal water changes. Until this issue arose my only concern was that the zoes were going to outgrow the tank and start taking over my house!
Now I have another thought; my lights. It's an aftermarket set up I bought used 8? years ago that uses Rapid LED (cree) parts. It does not look as bright as it used to, although that may be my imagination. Do LED's get dim over time; could my power supplies be getting weak? I know the consensus here is phos but I know my levels have always been high; hence my algae issue.
