Spirogyra Hair Algae
recent invasion of Spirogyra Hair Algae in my tank, it popped out of no where and invading many plants. i have heard during this season this algae occur outside in spring. is anyone else experiencing this lately? i have tried cutting down the Fe, which could also cause this and also dosing EI this time. i normally use my own recipe, but just to be safe i am using EI.
