i had cyano too back when i first started mine. you have to diligently siphon it out during each weeks water change. after a couple of months it went away. but then i had a major cladophora outbreak (had a moss ball in the bowl so maybe that was the culprit?) and after that its been more than a year now and i haven't even cleaned my glass. no algae on glass or plants. pretty amazing.

yours will reach that stage too!

thanks newman, i hope so. i still have dust like particles in my glass, sort of some algae. i will plant more hairgrass later. i hope my bowl look like your bowl soon. i still love ur bowl..

That looks pretty good man, I've got the same bowl and I think they make great little aquariums.

dont use excel, it can kill off your other plants if you overdose. just do a weekly water change and siphon out the cyano. how long have you had it for? it usually sticks around for a month or two before something replaces it.

With excel I use 1 to2 drop max everyday or 2. Except frogbit every other plant is thriving.. cyno has been there in the substrate, half of my substrate has been reduced by siphoning lol..there is no other algae except that.


@dreamchic go for it n good luck, don't forget to share you're bowl pics

is the cyano INSIDE the substrate (against the glass) or ON TOP of the substrate? if its inside then dont even bother it. as long as it doesn't smother your substrate and plants, you're good.

then do try to siphon it out like you've been doing. i know it can be tedious, but eventually it should go away. or grow inside the substrate up against the glass.

as long as its on top of the substrate, it is able to spread onto plants and probably starve them for light and other things. siphon is the best method. the shrimp should agitate it enough too. just keep at it. you'll win.
