Hi all,

I had to tear down my old planted tank largely because of a massive algae outbreak. I move out of my folk's house and left my 29 gallon tank with them. When I came back about 2 months later, the entire tank was filled with this weird black algae. It was long and curly, and grew largely on the leaves of the plants. I literally could not see the plants at that point.

So yea, I was wondering what kind of algae that was, and how I can prevent it from overtaking my new tank.

Thanks in advance
