If the algae build up is isolated go for the h2o2 spot dosing.

I will try that. Before going to H2O2, i will try to spot treat with Excel first. I dont have alot of Algae right now so hopefully i can keep it at bay.

I will have to go out and get another canister pf CO2 soon. I am thinking this maybe the cause since its running out
