So I am having hair algae problem for a long time.
Tank - 9g rimless
Filter - Aqueon 10 100gph
Light - FugeRay LED 12" 44 7000k 5 watt total (distance is right above the tank)
Time that Light is on - 8 hours
The previous light I use which I also had hair algae was a regular house fixture with 60watt equivalent 6000k CFL bulb at about 4 inch away. (I no longer use this bulbe). I also had this bulb on for 8 hours
Co2 - Pressurized PB tank with dual regulator I have it on for 24/7, I do this because I want to keep my pH down.
Air - have air bubbles running for about 8 hours only at night
-a little DHG
- some micro swords
I do not dose the plant with anything
No2 under <0.3mg/l
TDS - Not sure but probably low because its RO and I change about 1-2gallon every week some times bi-weekly
This is a CRS/CBS tank, I know that I can use H2O2 or excel to kill the algae but I would like if I don't because I don't want the algae coming back.
I would like to know what is causing the algae to prevent the hair algae.
Here are some of the hair algae. I have already move some that was bunched up in my fissiden.
