My tank has turned from this
Plant community Water Plant Rectangle Natural landscape


into this


Plant Plant community Natural landscape Vegetation Flower


Im trying to save and and clean it as much as I can but the carpet is a mess!
How can you possibly clean this?


Plant Plant community Natural landscape Flower Bedrock



if I run the sucker over the grass it will start to float and makes a worse mess.
I need some video on proper cleaning carpet method


I suspect that algae came from very intense lighting, not in hours but in lumen, plus a little bit of nutrient overdosing.
I am cutting down the lighting intensinty and the liquid fertilization,
I see some improvemtn and added a big crew of shrimps and ottos,
But still, maintaning my tank is a nightmare.
Please help

Well, there is this water change solution posted by Dennis Wong using a turkey baster

Water change to avoid algae

This may be the approach for your gentler/carpet plants especially if your current approach is sucking up the plants. And if you don't know Dennis he runs this site and is definitely an expert
