    I broke down 29 and moved everyone to a 10G holding tank. Both tanks have Eco-Complete [EC] good LED lights. Good news:29 looks great. Water crystal, plants& fish happy, water parameters 0 for nitrates, ammonia and nitrites.

    Bad news: 10 gallon tank initially also great. 4 apple snails, 4 adorable tiny albino cats and 5 Serpea Tetras [I know that is not the right name, pretty orange, happy, schoolers]….So what could go wrong? I thought I had a bit of my hair in the tank….me suspects you know where I am going. I have hair algae! Feels like it was instant. I didn’t even notice utill I added new plants planted. Nitrates/rites/ammonia all 0

    I am thinking: 10 gallon is nutrient rich, I need more plants. I removed snails into another tank [20 decrease poop] Took out all wood large rocks the stuff can grow on. Did 30% water change, put on a overly big for tank UV sterilizer and used a tooth brush to gently encourage some to fall away from plants.
