If you have issues controlling the hair algae, might I suggest getting 3-4 amano shrimp rather than spot dosing. They are escape artists, but they are really good at keeping algae down until you can do the rescraping the way you want too.45 minute session today. I noticed that some Green Hair Algae is starting to appear (lack of fast growing plants), so I have removed what I can find and target dosed with Excel on other spots that proved more stubborn.
I suppose I will throw in some Amazon Frogbit for the time to keep things balanced until I can do the rescape and put in the faster growing plants then (Rotala H'ra is still on the queue).
Basic maintenance water change, glass cleaning, algae removal, debris cleanup and restart. Really looking forward to doing this rescape. Will I make the next AGA? I should be able to without too much issue. Just going to take a bit longer to finally rescape things but April 2021 is the target date.
I think I just have a hard time with throwing out plants. I really should get used to it. It's no wonder my tank always looks like a jungle.When the weather warms up again, I will send up another care package. Do not worry, I have plenty.
