This probably sounds like a really dumb question.
But when it comes to planted tanks im still kind of in the noob side of it. Working my way out slowly, but surely.
But, to my question.
Why are so many algae problems solved by some extra Co2 and ferts? or even just by dosing some extra excel. Is this because it causes the plants to strip the water faster of nutrients, so the algae starves?
