Mine looked the same way when I got it. I wouldn't say it's the best idea to cut off all the leaves, but then I wouldn't really know either. I left mine to do whatever it wanted. One by one the old...

Could you explain this process a little more? I mean, the process is simple, but do you know why it works? This is the first I've heard of such a method, and if it works, why don't we all do it?...

That makes me feel a little better. I think I'm going to leave it and see what happens to it. Some of the larger ones seem to have broken down a big, while there are still some new ones appearing. I...

Creepy white threads growing on my glass

So my tank has mostly been on the back burner for about 5 months or so, during which I haven't been dosing any chems or making diy co2 or anything like that. In the past month I've started cleaning...

Much of the same thing happened to me. I let them grow after a while, partially due to laziness, and partially due to curiosity. I found that they really do take over if you let them, and the...

This is a very old thread, and I realize that. I don't think necroposting really applies when the thread was yours to begin with, though.

I swear by SAE's, but I think what is said here about them not being miracle workers is true. They're much better at eating algae when they're young. At least, mine were. Also, as someone already...

Based on this, I guess this means that you just started this tank? Meaning, the tank wasn't filled with water when you put the plants in? If so, I would suggest that your plants weren't pearling, but...
