Need Assistance Identifying


Hello,
I am new to the forum.

My tank is a 75 gallon planted tank - Picture Attached Below

The lights are setup to run for 10 hours a day.
I dose seachem liquid fertilizers.

I'm having an issue with what I think is an algae. I would like help identifying it, and ideas for removing it.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Looks like Staghorn. Removed affected leaves.

Need good levels of co2 and reduce your light period to 8 hours.

How often do you do water changes?

Thanks for the quick answer.

I do 25% water changes about every 3 days.

I'm not using c02, I dose seachem excel.

I would definitely cut back my light period. Looks like you also have green spot algae on your plants which is from too much light.
