Hi everybody

Hi everyone, longtime lurker, first time poster. Here's my planted tank. Creatures include 4 platies and an army of trumpet snails. Never used ferts, the tanks runs on fish and food waste. Not sure if it's appropriate to ask here how to rid tank of this new algae. Thanks so much!

@Katmarie123 Welcome to TPT! Fish and food wastes are probably not ideal for feeding your plants. The Algae will more readily feed from it before it breaks down enough for the plants to use. Your plants will also not have access to certain elements they need. You may want to consider some macro and micro blends from NilocG or some other pre-mixed blends. A little bit will go a long way in a smaller low tech setup.
