Hi LuwayneCrous - no, mate. It won't. Only finding the main cause of the green algae, would help with getting rid of it.
This is what I have done in my 2 meter tank when I was in my old house still:
- upgraded my skimmers from a Red Sea down-draft air-stone skimmer, and a Red Sea Prizm Deluxe skimmer, to 2 x ReefOctopus TS2 skimmers
- I reduced feeding (of my fish) to once every 2 days (my fish was not less healthy)
- I also manually scrubbed my live rock, outside of my tank, to get rid of the GHA
- I used a power-head every day to blow detritus off from my live rock
- I started using a phosphate remover media (SeaChem PhosGuard in my case)
- I "cooked" (not with boiling water ) my live rock, my placing them in a clean new container with only sea water in, with a power head to move the water - I then left the live rock in there for 6 weeks - this was all in the dark. Once this have been done, the live rock was rid of GHA.....
I also "stirred" the top +-1cm of my deep sand bed in my tank, to release any / all hidden detritus - this also acted as food for my corals.....
Hey Guys has anyone tried this????
I went away for 4 days and my tank was still hectic full of green hair and a few other algeas! Hectic I promise you all over the sand everything!!!! I did a 70% water change before I left and turned off the Atinic blue T5's only left my MH250w 14000k running! True's BOB!!! when I got back about 2 days I do not have a stich of algea besides some desirable cabbage weed growing!!! Wicked cool how do you explain this???
Are atinics really good for any form of Coral/invert growth or just our viewing pleasure?? I honestly think it was the lighting that was fuelling the growth!!??
especially if you are running lights like mine? (250w MH 14000k globes)
