Can anyone id this green/brown growth on my substrate/plants?
Basically I did dsm for around 3 months and this is my 3rd week after filling it with water. When I first filled the tank, I noticed this stuff was on my substrate but didn't think much of it. After a week or two it started to cover the plants (hc cuba).
the tank is a 5g and i cycled it after filling with water. previously i was using ei dosing and co2 but i've cut back on ferts for now.
is this just another type of algae that will go away if i adjust light/nutrient levels?
"Erythromycin – use antibiotics at half dosage to kill the bacteria. Mardel Labs’ Maracyn contains erythromycin and has been used effectively without harming most plants."
One step at a time.
This worked for me but tried the full blackout treatement first and it came back so knew I needed to remove problem before using this and it came from here. http://www.guitarfish.org/algae
