Just thought I'd throw some pics up of what's making me want to die...




Notice the strands on the Wisteria... Staghorn or something? :roll:

OMG, that is worse than mine before :shock: I'm not sure what they are but I thought it was brush algae (first picture). I was battling with hair algae and dosed more nitrate and phosphate in my tank. When the hair algae was gone so was that thing.

i got exactly the same thing! I started to add CO2, keep the lights timed, let the plants grow etc. The fast growing stem plants have taken over i also added a phoshate remover. The alage has stopped growing but was on the leaves is still there. Hopefully the plants will shoot out some new leaves and i'll have a cool looking tank again.

I need to dose NO3, probably K, and maybe a bit of PO4 too (it's a 0) to get things in balance.
