Something is messed up
My 10gallon tank has been going for over 6 months now but for some reason the algae is going out of control. From what I have read it is hair algae. Its on everything, plants, rock, tree house and it climbed all the way up on my Lilys to the leafs. Only thing that has changed is our climate in the Central California Valley that I can think of. My heater is now running steady as before it was hardly ever on. I have two Walmart Compacts from the aquarium section, which are 10watts I believe. I change 25% water weekly and add liquid plant food. I do not have CO2. I have had this happen a couple of times before and it was because my GF left the blinds closed in the room for the day and algae just spread like crazy and I couldnt figure out why til the second time it happened. Im not sure if I have my lights running to long as they are going to 11 hours but last week I brought it down to 10 hours per day and it seems to be getting worse than before. Im lost, can anybody assist me with this matter?
