I have had my algae scrubber running for a number of months, and its a 'slime' producer.
I did read on this forum that the slime removes more nutrients (good).
I have noticed that my nitrates have reduced to < 25 , which is good

I have a RAIN2 installed and have all four lights running on an 18 hour on/6 hour off schedule.
I started running all 4 lights after suggestions from this forum to do so .



Questions:
When or how do I transition from growing slime to where I'm growing green algae - or will I always be growing slime?
Should I just maintain the same pattern that I am doing? I clean the screen and base maybe every 4-5 days

Thanks
