Maybe something larger than duckweed, those guys are too tough. Depending on the size of the tank: red root floaters, frogbit, or giant duckweed.
+1 on the toothbrush method. Dollar stores usually sell 8 pack no-name toothbrushes for $1+tax.

|Eldachleich||Why not get something like duckweed? It's usually a dollar a scoop at pond stores and garden centers... and a scoop covers alot of area... It's always does a fantastic job in my tanks at fending off algae...|

Good stem plant to float in my tank to keep hair algae from destroying my HC?
The title says it all.
My hc is getting eaten by hair algae and I cant overdose excel because of my shrimp.
I just want it gone!
