My 50 gal is having an algea problem. I believe its either black beard or staghorn?
Heres my medium sword, my ludwiga [which has drastically improved since i got it, and now seems to be chocking!] its even on my anacharis!

These are the only plants that have algea, and are in the middle of my tank.
I have two 36 inch t8 6500K lights that are staggered on the 48 inch tank.
I beleive the algea happened cause of the stronger light in the middle.
I am not alternating between the two every four hours for about 12 hours, until i can get a 48 inch t8 6500k for my other fixture.

I dose flourish comprehensive supplement, and surrently have no substrate ferts, they are in the mail.
