All right... I also have some of that flossy green stuff.
I am getting ready to plant some tanks, and to aquascape some that just had the plants sort of tossed in.
It is really easy to remove from a tank as long as there are no plants tangled up in it.
If there are plants however, it is almost impossible to separate the plant from the algae.
A sturdy plant like Echinodorus is not much of a problem, but something weak and stringy like Guppy Grass is really hard to separate out from the algae.
What kills this stuff, leaving the plants intact?
I also have a brackish water tank, and algae is about all I can grow in that, too. The current growth is a dense green algae that makes the rounded coral look like giant Marimo balls. Green Tribbles. I like it!
