    thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge peter, it's always very informative reading your posts about fertilization and algae quite a number of brands of fertilizers subscribe to the "no N and P because your bioload will provide sufficient N and P" theory though, which may end up causing algae blooms because of limiting N and P. hard to remedy that cost-effectively with KNO3 being banned

    [QUOTE/] And because of the above statement, changing the light tube from 6500K to 10000K will not help GreenAqua's situation as the blue spectrum will further worsen the green water situation.[/QUOTE]

    So is the green tinge due to algae or diatoms or just photosynthesis by-product? Note it is not a typical green algae bloom as the water remains clear except for a slight yellowish-greenish tinge. This happens one day after water change and stays that way permanently.

    Do you have a picture of your tank with the yellowish-greenish water? And yes, photosynthesis can produce yellowish water as a by-product, but usually not green.

    If you have not clean your filter then it's time to do so.
    Because adding purigen and uv filter will not help to make your water crystal clear if your filter is clogged.
    Do note after cleaning your filter, the water will remain hazy until the bacteria repopulate. Adding purigen and uv filter at this stage will speed up water clarity.
