Please help cheato turning red

Postby Reefing Aquarist » Sat Oct 18, 2014 11:01 am

Good day everyone,

Can anyone help me? Cheato turning red. I am using 4pcs. E27 3w led bulbs at a distance of 4 to 5 inches from the water surface in an approximately 12 gallon remote refugium. Light hours is 12 hours.

Thanks in advance.

Up anyone?

Can anyone share what setups like lights, flow etc, you have for your refugium that is good for cheato growth?

Thanks in advance

For macroalgae gamit ko is 1x20w coolwhite led floodlight(ledtec brand)

Sa flow naman i think high or low flow pede pero sakin high flow.

Meron ka ba bio pellets? Baka kasi wala makain ang chaeto mo.

Eto yung mga macro ko.

Hi sir,

Thank you for your reply. Nice refugium you have there. Will try to get the flood lights. La ako biopellets. At low flow yata ako. I will try your suggestions. Thanks in advance. :D

Hi bro, is it turning red because of red turf algae or cyano? Kung cyano anlawan mo lang ng old tank water. Para ka na rin nag nutrient export nun.

Sayang hindi kami nakakuha sa Leyte ng macroalgae, but when I find time to go back to the beach, I'll bring you some pag nakadalaw ako sa iyo. :)
Cheers,
Marty

Sir cge po kung may madala kayong macroalgae would greatly appreciate it.

Di ko po alam anu difference ng red turf algae at cyano but lagay ko po dito pics.
Clarify ko lang... Its not the cheato turning red pero may bumabalot sa cheato na hairy cottony algae.
Anu po yon? Thanks in advance sir marty. :-)

Mukhang combination nga ng cyano and turf? Rinse mo lang ng old water during WCs. :)
Cheers,
Marty
