I have a 45g 4' tank that was CO2 and HO lights. It also had every type of algae I could think of no matter what I did.

So I took out the Co2 and changed to six 14W spiral CFLs with reflectors.

I picked out every bit of algae I could and scrapped all the plants except for my Anubias that I kept after a bleach bath.

I'm already starting to get algae back in the tank.

What plants do I want to fill it with to suck up the bad stuff?


Current: 45g planted, MTS/EcoC/blastingsand. SunSun filter, pressurized CO2.
Old: 15g planted / Aquaclear 30, Eco-C, Pressurized CO2
Old: 10g heavy plants, Eco complete, Cherry shrimp, otto's. DIY CO2 w/ glass diffuser. Aquaclear 20.
Old: 55g planted, Soilmaster select charcoal, community tank. Pressurized CO2 w/ in-line reactor. Magnum 350 pump.
