I would just focus on the plants growing super healthy. Grow those and gsa and the like will take care of itself. On the other hand rocks will usually always get algae growth which people usually just occasionally pull out and scrub. Itís difficult to avoid without becoming a pps pro expert or some other fine tuned method.
