1 pointI had been thinking about one of these for a while a macro algae reactor but the prices for these units seem crazy for what they are so went about making one. It consists of a second-hand TMC500 pellet reactor (Thanks Shane) and a £10 waterproof 5m strip of 12v led's 300 in total and daylight spec 6000-6500k I got them and wrapped them around the reactor followed by a several rolls of insulation tape and there we have it DIY macro algae reactor I'll see how it goes And here it is fitted to the tank Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

1 pointYeah I've used a cyanobacteria remover a couple of times and it worked like it stated on the packet however I found it returned after about 6months, i don't know if this was down to it just being masked by the chemical or my bad husbandry, what I've learn from weeks and weeks or researching is one of the main factors of cyanos appearance is an unbalance between your nitrates and phosphates when I got on top of this and kept them within a good ratio it never returned.
