thanks guys!

ive been doing some reasearch on the algae that im having problems with.
i believe itr is spyrogia.
as i have said its only on the fissidens, i read on an old thread in this forum that it always seems to start there.
i will remove all of the fissidens and replace it with something else.
i was thinking mini pilea or peacock moss.

suggestions?
