I'd setup my 72g bowfront planted tank a week ago. Then, 2 days ago, as if by magic, brown algae (diatoms) and thread algae started appearing everywhere. Over the course of 1 day the thread algae had grown on the back wall of the tank to be up to 8-10 inches long!
So, last night I travelled up to the LFS and got myself a cleanup crew - 3 SAE's, 6 oto's, 3 bronze cory's, and 10 Amano shrimp. I really didn't expect much overnight, but boy was I amazed. This morning I woke up and lit up the tank and whadda you know... ALL the thread algae on the back wall of the tank was cleaned up.
At this moment the cleanup crew is scouring the plant leaves and devouring all the brown algae and hair algae on the leaves.
This is great!
