Diatoms/ brown algae.
This stuff is brutal. It strangled all my plants in my 20gal, couldn't bring in a cleanup crew because its my axolotl tank. Now its causing problems in my 10 gal. But anyways, I'm going to replant the tanks and give proper lighting this time so hopefully it can outcompete.. should I test for silicate? I don't have the test kit for that.. and its about 20 bucks... I mean I'll do it if I have to. But do you guys have any tips on eradicating it? I'm thinking PhosZorb , but I don't really like putting something in my tank that I don't know what's in it/what is being released into the water/ how it works. Can anyone explain Phoszorb?
Thanks guys!! I love this forum.
