Ok, extreme noob alert here, so please be patient.
I have a 5 litre phyto reactor and I'm having problems with pollution of the phyto by algae.
This wasn't much of a problem this summer when I bought it, but it has become increasingly so. I have sterilized the reactor three times with a solution of half bleach and half water. It would work, but each time the culture would become polluted more quickly. This last time I only managed to split the culture once before the reactor got invaded with algae.
I have found this thread about sterilizing the water with chlorine every time, and it makes sense, but I'm not too sure how to do this, so please bear with me ans please tell me if I've understood the materials and the procedure.
So... I sterilize the water with this:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sodium-Hypoch ... 20c1dd1cd0
adding 1ml per litre
I prepare a solution of 75grams of this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1KG-IN-20X50G ... 417c8fc4c3
in half a litre of water and use 1ml per litre of the solution to dechlorinate
I add the appropriate amount of f/2 and add to the reactor?
