Hi, I'm a subscriber to your magazine and new to the hobby.
I have real difficulty in keeping a stable temperature I mean it can swing
from 23oc to 27oc, everything is fine In my tank. Is this a major problem
and is there anything I can do to keep it more stable , I've tried turning
my heater down, put my central heating higher and lower , I'm lost at what
else to do?
Good to see new people taking up the hobby; hope you are enjoying it so far.
Help I'm plagued with Cyanobacteria, I have a Fluval Venezia 190, I have a fluval 405 filter running with h2ocean nutri-fix NP 120 ml, fluval biomix & ehiem bio mech, together with a TMC Vectron 200, V2 ozone (lowest setting every three hours) & a hydor slimskim nano 135-35.

“I am told that I can fight bad algae by introducing good algae via a refugium/sump ... but how much do I need? For example, if I was to add cheato to my sump and light it in reverse to my display tank, would this work and how do I know how much cheato I need to buy? Thanks, Sean Richards, Somerset.”
Reading between the lines I am going to make the assumption that you are asking a direct question about this particular form of algae control because you are struggling with keeping the amount of algae to an acceptable level.
