2nd image is at 10 weeks. I had nitrate limitation going on (thanks to forums members who helped me figure that out) and it caused hair algae to grow out very nicely. I think the hairy rocks look kinda neat. But another week later it looked aweful. Excell for a quick fix.. and then I watched to make make sure I have enought ferts. Now the hair is gone.. and I have a lot of Nitrates in there... I run this tank around 30 ppm.

I like the algae but the tank has potential.....still needs to grow out and be lush. Keep it up!

yeah I actually like the look of hair algae on the round rocks too. Wish it was more like a plant and would kinda stay where I wanted it to grow.. but.. alas.. it had to go... it kinda took over after that pic. It's gone now thank goodness. ;-)
