as much as possible, then water change gets the rest.
I finally got my UG to take off in my shrimp tank and now I'm fighting hair algae in it. Such a pain. I have almost pulled all my UG out trying to remove the hair algae. Now I've put about 15 amanos in there. Hopefully they will be able to be more selective than I can. I sure hope they take care of it. This was about the 4th or 5th time I have tried this stuff and was finally successful - just to be foiled by the hair algae! ARGG!!!
