@Bent17 you have got to get out of this mindset of warring on the algae. Sun Tzu wrote the greatest victory is the fight you don't have to fight. I understand your frustration with the algae. You just have to change things around so you don't have algae in the first place. I know this is harsh advice and I feel kind of mean saying it but avoiding trouble is just as important as not causing trouble. I find myself wishing I had more algae because I'm worried about my shrimp and otocinclus not having enough algae to eat. Accept the algae. Allow it to be a part of your tank and it will go away. I wish you well.Hi all - whoever is dosing with APT complete do you add excel to it as an algae preventer?
Is this new? I don't remember you having CO2 before. Be careful with it. You have to find the right balance of light and gas. This is the best thing you could have done to avoid algae. I wouldn't add the Excel if I were you. I don't think it will be necessary. Enjoy your algae while it last.Forgot to mention I have co2 and it goes on 2hrs before lights go on
