Update: Most of the Downoi melted unfortunately and the UG is still transitioning. Nano tanks are pretty frustrating but I am hoping with steady water changes everything will turn around. I also added some green rotala
it's cyano - best way to kill is to directly dose/sprinkle bacter 100 on top of it. Should clear within 24-48 hours. The bacteria will eat the other bacteria. Fear not, for this is one of the easier algaes to encounter.
Time for an update:
Franks suggestion for using Bacter 100 to fight the BGA worked wonders. After I sprinkled it on, it was gone in 48 hours. Everything is looking really healthy now, so I definitely have Frank to thank for that. I tried many other methods to get rid of the BGA and Bacter 100 worked the best.
On another note I left town for a few days and the co2 wasnt running, so the UG is looking pretty rough. I also added some more Downoi, since all the previous plants melted. The Java moss on the driftwood got replaced by riccia. I also got in Do!Aqua lilypipes and an Archaea 27w. Heres some crappy iphone pics.
I was hoping someone would be able to help me out. I woke up this morning and one of my CRS was dead and all my fish and shrimp were hanging out and the top of the tank. The Co2 was off and the drop checker was green. I did take my drift wood out yesterday to spot dose with h202 in a bucket, but Im not sure if thats the problem. Anyone have any ideas?
