i have a 37 gallon planted tank that when it is cycled will be a nice ram tank. i want one pair of gbr and one pair of ebr. i had one ebr but because of a ph spike it died. right now i have 2 small angels, 4 rosy tetras, 4 celebies rainbows, 1 clown pleco, 1 molly (lived his whole life in freshwater and is doing great), 1 platy, and 3 female bettas. i have a aqua clear 70 and a sand filter on it and a full spectrum light. i have checked my levels and everything is looking great... but i am having a really bad Algae bloom. at first lit looked like a bacteria bloom so i added some clarifier. that did nothing, so i did a 35% water change and after that it turned green. i did a 4 day blackout and it looked like it had gotten better for a day and than it came back with a vengeance. so i tried the algaecide and that made it worse, so Monday i did a 50% water change and started another blackout that i wont stop until the algae is dead. i did find out what caused the bloom though, the room it is in gets a lot of indirect sunlight. ive read up on daphnia and think im going to try to ad them in a breeding box and hope they can eat it up. im just so frustrated because its been almost 4 weeks now and i want it gone. i would also like to add new fish but not sure if thats a good idea. if i could i would do a 100% water change and hope that would do it but i know that it wont do much good. any and all help would be appreciated.
