what is the best way to remove this algae?
thanks a million
Looks like green hair algae, this one is very difficult to remove. Try to remove as much as possible by hand. There is a trick using a wooden cocktail stick and screw the algae on it. Insert lots of amano shrimps and check all parameters.
thanks for the info
I answered your question at AQ, don't want to cut and paste here )
ckeck if there is maybe a flow dead spot in the part of the tank the fissidens grow. is it just on fissidens? or overall in the tank?
for manual removal I like to use a toothbrush and twist it.
the usual algae culprits could be blamed...too much light, unstable or insufficient CO2, nutrient deficiencies, flow. Those are the parameters to check.
