Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster here.
I have an 11.5 gal Mr.Aqua tank that's been up and running for a little over 7 weeks. I'm getting this stringy, hair like green "algae" on every plant I put in this tank. After trying to research, talking to a few members on the forum and local fish shops, nobody can give me any advise on how to cure this annoying issue.
I'm Running the wave point 12" 16W led lighting.
Which I've raised my light higher off the tank, and reduced the amount of hours it's on per day to 7hrs.
CO2 off the paint ball canister 1-2 BBS
I'm dosing the pfertz M,P,K,N every 3rd day with K being dosed daily to try and help with this issue.
I'm using RO water with a 25%-%30 water change every 5/6 days.
Eheim classic canister filter
Eco complete capped with fluval shrimp stratum.
I've gotten in the tank and physically removed it off the plants but it just grows back twice as fast and thick. I'm to the point of frustration now when I see it growing I just hack the plants, and have to part ways with my beautiful new growth.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
