I got lazy and stopped dosing ferts + excel in my high light, high tech tank for about a week and green haired algae started doing it's thing. I immediately started dosing again and new growth is starting to cover up the old algae. If this was your situation, would you guys remove the algae that has appeared or just let the plants outgrow it and let the problem take care of itself. I should post a pic of my tank when it was started in Feb and what it looks like today... Maybe later after work, but I've been following the same dosage amounts since Feb but the plant growth is insane, I feel like they can use more, but again, it's just a gut feeling. I might be trying to fix something that isn't broke and I don't want to break it for real!
