    Hi all,
    Daily would be best, this is why people <"build dosators etc">. I wouldn't be too bothered about it if you are short of time? Weekly is still going to work.

    cheers Darrel

    Times not an issue really, I mean I’m home from work same time every day all week so it won’t be a problem.
    I’ll start tonight then, I’m feeling quite optimistic now with the help I’ve received on here which is great as I was starting to feel slightly disheartened about this ‘issue’
    Once I’m on top of things and it starts to balance out will the diatoms slowly disappear or do they need to be manually removed?
    Thanks, James

    Hi all,
    Normally they decline of their own accord.

    The only Diatom have ever re-appear in an established tank is the filamentous Synedra/Fragilaria type (from <"What is this?">)
