Any help would be much appreciated...
I'm having problems with the rapid build up of green algae, a thick layer of slime that covers the whole of the aquarium base, after a matter of days.
I have a 160 litre tank, fluval 304 ext. filter, all the correct media, 15" air stone, and heater set at room temp. for those cold winter nights.
I have a single inhabitant at present, a Comet goldfish.
Have tested for amonia and nitrite and is ok, although pH is slightly alkaline at 8.5, and might explain the rapid build up. But how do I change this?
Help much appreciated...
