    I'm having hair algae issues, its thin, very thin algae I've never experienced it before.

    Tank is running Co2 and ferts, lights are 3 x 15w over a 15gallon on 8 hours a day, Co2 on an hour before lights on and an hour prior to lights off.

    I've bought 6 Amano shrimp to help deal with the situation, they've cleaned my rocks spotless but its among my HC the algae is thriving. I realized I need to hit this early before it takes over. The Amano's have been in the tank for 2 days now.

    Algae is like this type. I'm gonna directly apply Flourish Excel in the morning to the badly affected areas and hope my Amano's eat the rest. Any input as to light cycles? or co2? possibly keep co2 on till lights out? HELP PLZ
