Introduction

Hi, I am very new to marine fish tank, I have a another Reefer350 tank, I setup this Reefer170 as a hospital tank, but not really put it into real use. This tank condition is not satisfied....

I've converted reefer170 from salt water tank into fresh water planted tank!

I am really glad to see the green hair algae is disappearing, been eating away by Yamato shrimp...
After enjoying about 1 week blooming/flourish beautiful planted tank, these a few days, start seeing algae growing rapidly. I did a few things to fight algae: *****************************************
Today lunch time, I bought 1) Biomedia, 2) CO2 disfuser, 3) Gubby x2 4) Tall plant x2
Tonight, Reefer 170 planted tank added in water and setup CO2 dispensing.
Day 03 of Reefer 170 planted tank, looks well!
