ok their are a number of algae's in my tanks currently. I recently did an H2O2 in both my shrimp (18 gal) and 75 gal tanks. The area's that have been spot treatmented are bubbling like mad the shrimp didint like the H2O2 much so a waterchange came right away. I am running Co2 on both tanks The 75 has pressurized at about 3 bps and the 18 gal has well DIY. Tropica master grow are ferts each week. Help with ID and how to get rid of the algae much appreciated !





thanks

pic #2 appears to me to be some kind of hair/thread algae.
My advice would be physical removal. Use an old toothbrush or your fingers and comb through it and pull it out as much as possible. Direct application of Excel, via a dropper or syringe, has worked for me in the past on some hair/thread algae.
