I have a tank with ADA soil and CO2 injection. Only two plants: dwarf baby tears (Hemianthus callitrichoides) and Moneywort (Bacopa Monnieri). The tank has been going for a few months now. It's basically ok, but there is a tiny bit of hair algae growing on both plants. I mean tiny. It;s not a problem at the moment.

I am still experimenting with light time and CO2 injection.

Does any one have any suggestions how to get rid of the algae before it becomes a bigger problem?

Cheers.

I would just concentrate on tweaking your CO2. You didn't mention what light and light time, but about an 8 hr period is good to start with. I would remove all you can see now.

My tank is only 27 litres, however it is 60cm long, just not so deep and high as normal tanks that length. I have the mainland LED Aquatic Plant Lighting System, using 24 1watt LEDs.

Lights are on for six hours.

I have tried to attach a photo.

Cheers
