hi jade first of all good fish bowl, for algae try dosing excel, have heard they kill algae. good luck. would love to see your tank. did u manage to get the carpet effect without the green algae.

also algae could mean the light is too strong for your small bowl and also if you cover your bowl with a blanket for a day or two and then do a 50% water change you would be able to overcome the prob.

water change is a must so keep frequent water change and hopefully you should be fine.

TheJadeShrimp From doing the dry start and having a little bit more water than I should. I have like a blanket of green algae cover the DHG. But everything is great and doing good. Hopefully i can get some shrimps soon.

TheJadeShrimp The DHG has grown about a inch or 2 since flooding. I think I am going to suggest dry starts more now. haha

Thanks. When I added the water the DHG grew some more. I am hoping it will overgrow and look like a large field.

TheJadeShrimp Well! Here it is flooded and with some Salvinia floaters I got from Newman.
And probably some Dwarf Water Lettuce.

TheJadeShrimp 5 more days and the bowl will be flooded.

TheJadeShrimp 10 more days to go before the flooding.

TheJadeShrimp Get ready March 28 the bowl is going to be flooded. I can't wait! It has some good growth. Forgot to mention I have another bowl with just clumped roots and water. I have DHG growing in there. This stuff is really EASY to grow for me anyway!
