SpiroGyra Algae caused by ammonia spike in fishless cycle ?
SpiroGyra Algae is starting to pop up. All the information I can find says it is induced by an ammonia spike. How could I avoid that if I am still cycling my aquarium ??
A bit frustrated. It amazes me how ridiculously fast algae can pop up and grow. Literally in one day a few strands, and the next day when I wake up at least triple the amount.
I just did a 90 percent water change
Manually removed as much as possible.
Overdosed excel by 3x.
Added a power-head which I have avoided because I honestly feel its probably too much flow. (any advise here ?)
Replaced my ceramic disk with a new one hopefully for better diffusion of co2
If you have experience with this algae and can share some advise , I would greatly appreciate that. Thank you ! <33
