Clarification on GSA
Hi there, new member and looking forward to getting more involved here.
I was just hoping for a quick confirmation that this algae is indeed GSA.
I have looked up possible ways to rid my tank of this stuff, but hesitant to do a black out as i am currently trying to grow a new monte carlo carpet.
Someone suggeates to turn off the filter and spot treat with peroxide. Thoughts?
