Started from dry start up to 8 weeks. Lush hair grass all went very well. After 1week of flooding I got cyano bacteria. I’ve dosed 2 times with blue green slim remover. But still I don’t see a solution. Can anyone help me how can I get rid of the blue green algae AKA cyano bacteria?

I am on day 3 of a blackout in my shrimp tank. I’ll let you know if that killed it tomorrow. The blackout worked for me years ago when I had BGA last.

Yes they will some worse than others. Those that are growing well and are healthy will be fine and really all should bounce back but yes there may be some setback.

Just took the blanket off and it is 100% gone. Almost all of the plants are perfect. Some newly planted hairgrass that was not established died back and a new lily that just started sprouting died back 50%. Nbd. 3 full lighting cycles total blackout.
