    Hi guys please will you give me your honest opinion on the changes of my nano. The cabling is a bit untidy still need to tidy it up. Could someone also please give me some advise with the algue in my tank? Iv put in a new skimmer because my old one was not working properly so i wonder if that has caused the algue growth.

    Looking good. In regards to the algae. You can dose some Red Sea no PO4 -X. Will help bring down phosphate levils. Also a lawnmower blenny will help a lot as they live of the GHA.

    How old is your tank? Do you feed the fish heavily? Did you rinse the substrate out? What is your water change routine?
    I had a problem with my 37l when I first started but as the tank aged, the algae sorted itself out.
    You could try running some phosphate remover and up your water changes, it should help. Your new skimmer should also help.

    Nice to see you managed add a sump :)

    Hope your algae problems come right! :)

    The tank is close to 2 years old. I do a water change once a week. Feed the fish once a day and not a lot just a sprinkle of ocean nutrition flakes. Thanks for the advice gonna do a water test soon just want the sump to run a bit.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Would my tank be big enough for a lawnmower blenny?
