    Thanks goodness it gone quite fast as I did a 80% water change on 27082016 as ammonia and nitrite reading has gone to zero and nirate has gone up. And also brought some clean up crew from ah beng to eat all the algae and it really help alot dk if I kiasu or what cos brought 12 Turbo snail and 5 Sally light foot crab and they did their work pretty well

    One advice for you. Replace that jebao return pump before it fails and crash your tank
