I'm having a lot of trouble with hair algae and just looking for some advice. This is a new tank with CO2 inejction at one bubble per second. I have an active diffuser (PVC pipe and bio-balls). The tank is 38 gallons with 96 watts of CFL light left on about 8-10 hours per day. My nitrates are a bit high - 50 ppm now but reduced from 80 ppm since its a new tank. Trying to fix them with 30-50% water changes a week. I dose plantex every other day. I have some amazon swords that are getting holes in the leaves also.
Any ideas what I may be low on? The hair algae goes crazy. I remove it all then its back covering everything in 3 days. Thanks.
