. When plants have all the nutrients they need to grow well algae does not do well and may die off.

When right conditions are given to plants algae has less chance. But I think current algae will still do well in nutrient rich water.



It is good to find the main cause. Some amano shrimp can help with some minor hair algae but also try to fix the main cause.
