Tank: 125 gallon standard
Substrate: flourite black, pfs, pebble mixture
Flora: java fern, cabomba x2 types, cyperus helfiri, hygrophilla difformis, anubias x2 types (Nana, marble), marsilea spp. And x2 marimo moss balls.
Fauna: 1 pearl gourami, tons of guppies, mollies, and platties, x9 neon tetra, x4 corydoras, x1 whiptail catfish, and countless ramshorns and pond snails.
Filter: fluval fx5 with filter floss, lava rock, bio max, and brown bio balls(technically a hydroponics substrate).
Lights: x4 32w 4ft t8 bulbs and x2 40w 4ft t12 bulbs approx. 1 to 2 inches from top of water and approx. 20 to 24 inches from substrate (to lazy to get up and measure right now).
Photoperiod is about 10hrs per day.
Anubias and java fern is attached to a few pieces of driftwood. Two pieces of slate are propped on one end, and extra lava rock pieces are scattered about. No ferts, no co2.
Technical jargon over... Now for the issue.
I have two types of algae growing in my tank and cannot identify either. I have been fighting them for a while now, but have only managed to keep it at bay. Lately I have been unable to fight the good fight, but have noticed that the algae has stopped spreading. So today I take out my handy dandy bottle of h2o2 and start direct application to the algae, hoping maybe I can end this fight for good. So the stuff on the substrate reacts like crazy, bubbling and foaming and dying almost instantly. I jump for joy, then start application of h2o2 to the algae on the driftwood and lava rocks. This stuff reacts very little, if at all, and I hypothesize that the little bit that does react is because the other type of algae is mixed in. As I said, I can't seem to identify either type, and now I'm not sure how to get rid of the stuff on the driftwood. Pics are attached of the algae, any tips or identification is welcome.
