Green Hair Algae in mature tank - dumb question
Here is what I would recommend. Get back to your dosing routine, restore the photoperiod that was set, more frequent water changes and things should go back to normal.
Getting some Amano shrimp (bigger ones) should help, the betta will leave them alone. Amanos are fun to watch. I like them when they graze along the hardscape, substrate and plants. Need to be be more cautious with water changes when having invertebrates in the tank. Water conditioners for one and maintaining temperature is the other that has helped me.
I would stay away from any chemical treatment for now for the green hair algae problem. Looking at your tanks pic I was not able to spot any as well. So I assume the problem is not severe. May be itís just starting.
