What am I doing wronge?
What am I doing wronge? My tank is infested with algae. I'm not sure what kind but it's white and stringy like spider webs. My java moss is infested with brown gunk.
My tank is a ten gallon. I have DIY co2, with a hagen bubble ladder. As of now I'm getting a stable 10 bubbles per minute, I'm also doseing everyday with excel. I have a 40 watt powercompact light w/duel daylight bulb, and I do 50% water changes a week. My filter is a Hagen mini, and I'm using a sponge and bio rings in it. I'm also using flourite for a substrate, and my lights are on 10 hours a day.
My fern, and rotala are doing good but my crispus's has few leaves that are turning brown. It's mainly the finer leaved plants that are getting attacted by algae.
When I turn my lights out the plants seem to do better. When I turn the light on thier all reaching upward, what is this?
Any advice or comments?
