cladophora

  1. Algae
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and i've made some mistakes with my first nano tank. I didn't realise that I had cladophora, I thought it was just normal hair algae and so I left it. It's too late now, it's on all the hardscape and on some plants. I'm pretty sure its cladophora, it's wiry n'...

    Do you think this is cladaphora and if so what should I do. It isn't green but it has similar structure. it is everywhere, on the wood, carpet, moss.

    Hello all :smile2: I have a 5 gal Fluval Spec V that's been set up for several months – since Sept 2015 – which has been really interesting and challenging as I'm new to the hobby. (Love it!) I was battling what I believe to be GSA since upgrading the stock light (to Finnex Planted+) early on...

    PEOPLE THE GODS HAVE ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS! So I was having problems with cladophora algea for about a year and I tried everythinnnnng to stop it. Even bleach, but nothing was good enough. Until one day I'm taking inventory of all my aquarium supplements and I find this bottle of API Algeafix. I...

    I've been battling Cladophora (course tough hair like green algae) for a while now. I can keep it minimized by physical removal and spot treatments, but it just does not seem to respond like other algae to treatments such as more water changes, careful use of ferts, and reduced light cycles. I...

    This has been very slow growing algae, been in here a couple months now. I find it somewhat attractive. My shrimp and fry like to hang out in it sometimes. My research indicates it might be Cladophora algae which may be the same type as those Marimo balls (I had one once, maybe it came from...
  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Since BCA is selling some short nose shrimps, how are these different from amanos? They say they are more friendly alternatives, but do they also eat clado?
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Will nerites eat clado and/or spirogyra? I suspect that I got some clado in a plant shipment and am considering them along with more amanos.

    I had discovered Cladophora(blanket weed) / staghorn algae in my tank a couple of weeks ago. I read that the issue is due to low nutrients, low CO2 levels and unhygienic tanks. Within a few of days after the discovery, the algae took complete control over my tank! :frown: So I cleaned up all the...
  10. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all, I came across this forum when I bought a couple of those marimo "moss" balls (aka Cladophora and Aegagropila linnaei) from Amazon. I've been looking through all these cool tanks (esp pico sized ones) and am really excited about growing aquatic plants. Except I'm slowly killing my...

    Somehow I ended up introducing cladophora into my tank. EI dosing, 2x39W T5HO 4'' about water level on a 30 gallon, pressurized CO2, drop checker green-yellow, water circulation is good, I stay on top of trimming so it remains good. It hasn't gone wild, but there's a few strands here and there...
  12. Plants
    Hello! I'm fairly new to planted tanks and recently got a gorgeous driftwood centerpiece from my LFS that is covered in a moss. The problem is, I can't tell what kind of moss it is! Anyone have an idea? I'm really anal and have to keep an excel sheet of everything in my tank and "unknown" just...

    Newb question: Does the product AlgaeFix from Aquarium Pharmaceuticals damages or harms the Japanese Moss Ball? because I understand that more than a plant, it is a ball of algae.
