    All the problems started when I set up alkalinity dosage pump. I have cyano all over the tank and green hair algae on back wall.
    Here are my parameters:
    Magnesium - 1600ppm
    KH (Alkalinity) - 7dkH
    Calcium - 440ppm
    Salinity - 1.024
    Phosphate - 0 ppm
    Nitrate - 0 ppm
    Nitrite - 0 ppm
    pH - 8.43
    Ammonia - 0 ppm
    Temp - 78.2 F
    I also start using biopellets two weeks ago. Biopellets are made by two little fishes.

    Okay. I have used Chemiclean to fix the cyano problem. Almost immediately skimmer start to overflow after I add it to my tank . No matter what I did , how I adjust it , it overflow . So I have to keep the bottom drain open. After 24hrs my water start to get cloudy. After 48 hours I replaced about 25% of the water. And it looks like the water is getting more cloudy. What is the problem? I have my biopellets reactor running all the time.
