Gross Canister Filter lines
I started an excel regiment about two weeks ago. I have a tendency to turn off the canister filter while I feed live brine shrimp.
Lately every time I turn it back on there is a disgusting blast of brown algae from inside the feed tubing. I'm assuming the excel has the algae ,that has accumulated in the tubes, dying and breaking free. I don't plan on dosing much longer.
Would covering the clear tubes in fabric or the like keep them from growing all that brown algae inside? Any other solutions that have worked for the group?
I am an equipment and tool junkie. I try to keep it simple but.........
