Thanks for sharing Matrix.

nice summary about algae

but this might be dangerous:
"(I clean filters with each water change). The filter gets dirty and reduces the water circulation. Less circulation = slower nutrient transport. Also weaker surface agitation = less Oxygen.
I did some tests by doing water change every 3-4 weeks but cleaned the filter every week to keep good flow and moderate surface agitation and this algae never came back.
So keep your filters clean ;-)"

unfortunately he does not mention how he cleans the filter.
since the filter contains the important bacteria we need, a total cleaning each week will wipe out all bacteria.
the tank might run into serious NO2 problems.
