Within past month or two I have received various plants and mosses and on one of them I got a huge infestation of green looking thread type algae that spread through my tank like wild fire. I had read about other using excel and Amani shrimp to get rid of it. On a whim the other day and went out and bought around 30 glass shrimp. After a couple hours I checked on them and to my suprise I noticed nearly all of it gone. Never heard of anyone using these particular shrimp to combat this issue so I figured I would share what I found and hopefully it can help others get results like mine.
