Greenish Algae in a new (9 weeks) tank.


HI guys.
I have a 9 weeks 12 gallon planted tank.
Just noticed a green brownish algae growing on the glass and freshly planted plants.

I am running 36 Watt Kessil light for 8 hours with Co2.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

GSA and Diatoms . For GSA and Diatoms , increase the water flow of the tank and introduce some oto catfish . Dont worry it will go away soon

Thank you Kalyan.
I am using poppy glass inflow Lilly pipe but looks likes its not enough for this tank

I do have 2 Otos and just got a tiger snail and few Amano shrimp. Ill get some more Otos, hopefully that will do the trick.

Get a rio+50 pump. Nice and small and it moves a lot of water. Also can be adjusted with an included ball valve.
