I have 3 inches of Flourite substrate...

Every day for the last 3 months I've had oodles of thread algea.

I have to run my hands up and down my plants daily to get it all.
But it comes back every day.

Is this typical ?? Is the substrate causing the thread algae ??

I only dose the recommended amount of Flourish once a week (2 caps into 40 gallons).

Not typical. I dont think the substrate is to blame. What is your dosing regime and what are your water specs...
