This is my first tank/aquascape and recently planted (2weeks). It is a 5 gal tank with 4 cherry shrimp, 6 crystal shrimp, 14 neon tetras, 7 xwing tetras, 2 pea puffers, and 1 reticulated hillstream sucker. I feed them all blood worms (about 3/4 of a frozen cube) and keep the tank at 74-73F. The water is clear and the plants receive about 10-15 hours of light a day from a Wave point 12" 16 watt 6500k daylight. My filter is a Aqueon quiet flow 10 and I do a 25% water change about every 3 weeks. The last change I did was 6 days ago to cleanup the over feeding from the flakes that the fish did not like. I wall also feeding Algae wafers and shrimp wafers but they didn't seem to like them. About 3 days ago I noticed algae forming on my driftwood and it is hard to scrap off (syphoning doesn't work). Also my glass has green dots on it which I'm assuming is just normal algae that my sucker will eat and the shrimp will eat it off the rocks. Any suggestions on getting rid of this algae and what it is?
