Welcome to the clado experiment. Clado is a topic of discussion on these boards and is rated algae nemesis number one . It likes excel, light, dark, nitrate, no nitrate, C02, and what ever you do or dont do. It survives just like a hardy robust plant. Clado seems to be the hardest of all algae to beat, but there is a mid size consensus that says amano's will eat it. So the question is will they eat it?
Well I am here to journal a tale of 5 amano's and their company 5 cherries, documneted in their battle against a dreadfull bundle of clado. Pictures will be taken every other day of this mass of clado.
The journal starts in their beautiful home, a 2.5g.
as we journey further into the tank we begin to see the formation of a darker green mass in the center of the picture. Yes, thats it. Its CLADO.
The closer we get to the dark green mass of clado we notice something lighter green in the middle of it. What could be trapped in the middle? Oh, it looks like some HC is being sufficated in the middle.
Zooming further in. There is a fully engulfed piece of pretious HC, and we all know that this is what claso does. It sucks the life out of smaller less fortunate foreground plants. WE HATE CLADO....
Hopefully my amano's are up to the task. Here is a pic of one of the chosen ones.
