Greenwater has been defeated, as a new foe rises. The silk algae has spread almost everywhere. It's not severe in any one particular spot, but it's an even spread in most sections of the tank.

The two methods of attack I am considering:

1) h202 doseage at 4ml per gallon, disconnecting the filter and shutting off the light for a few hours, letting it spread around the tank via powerhead. I would spot treat but it'd be a waste of time, it's everywhere.

2) complete blackout for X amount of days. X being at least three days.

Plant growth has been superb, here is a fulltank shot. The glosso I aggressively trimmed is sprouting new leaves everywhere, we'll see how long I can keep the GSA at bay.
