Help with algae


Hey,

I was wondering if anyone could help identify this algae for me and advise how to ruthlessly destroy it.





I read around a bit about a month ago and tried to tackle it but I have just come back from holiday and it is worse than ever

Thanks!

Sam

GSA is all I see. Just use a scraper of some kind to get it off. Itll be pretty hard though since you have a sphere to clean.

You could always try a pot scrubber in the meantime.
