How to use hydrogen peroxide to get rid of all this hair algae?
Hey guys, i've got a 5.6 gallon fluval spec and brown hair algae keeps growing on my fluval stratum and driftwood and it's slowing spreading to the plants on the bottom. There is also green hair algae growing on the glass.
I used to have the lights on for 7 hrs, put it down to 5 hrs. I do 50% water changes a week. I stopped dosing a small amount of ferts for a few weeks but I started again with no difference.
I have java fern, anubias, crypts, hydrocotyle tripartita, staurogyne repens that is covered in algae, and rotala rotundifolia in the back that grew well when the tank was first set up but now it's not growing. There are new roots I can see in the dirt, along with new plants growing out of the dirt but the taller plants are not growing or dying.
I was wondering how I can use hydrogen peroxide to kill it as having it growing on the stratum is a little ridiculous.. could anyone help with how I should do it? I have just a betta in there.
