    hi
    just needing some advice on eliminating my tank of fliaments
    i will post some pics but there is also a red like hair in really small patches in among the filaments
    the tank has been with me for 2 months now but was running foe 2 years before i took it over. 1.8x600x600
    please let me know what i should test?
    i tested nitrate levels after the 1st month and was 0
    i havnt had any fish in at all till 2 weeks ago. i have 2 clowns and a mandarin(i have loads of pods)
    lights come on at 10am and are off by 8pm.
    i am feeding formula 2 flakes but don't think im over feeding/
    i have charcoal and sea-gel in the sump and the DSB from the previous owner.
    i also have a small amount of chaeto in the sump aswel
    hopefully i have supplied enough information
    thanks

    Pictures tells a lot.
    Especially the sump area. How big is the DSB in relation to the display system?
