Cladophora algae

My Fissidens mat has been taking over slowly by this algae. Everytime I pull them out some fissidens are pulled away too. This is the only place in my tank that has Cladophora Algae.

Meantime, I place them in a bucket and dose excel.

Any quick way to get rid of this algae? Does bleaching work?

There is no quick way. It takes determination and dilegence (sp), pluse amanos.

+1 every time u get your hands in the tank take out the moss an use tweezers/fingers an remove what u can, it took me 1-2months to clean out a tank that most would have thrown in the towel for but 100% gone for several months now, added more flow, constant removal of any i saw and h2o2 and it finally is gone so just stay on it! dont give up you can beat it, or just trash that little piece thats infected an start fresh sometimes its the faster and easyer way to go imo.
