Hi,
Attached is a picture of algae that won’t stop growing in my tank. I sent my water off to Triton and all my parameters on in line. I tried chemi clean dosing to get rid of it, but that didn’t work. I also doubled my cleaning crew. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
thank you!
David

Use a syringe filled with peroxide & push it into the base of the algae in different spots.
It should start turning white & die.
A clean up crew generally likes vary short algae. Many say a Foxface will help.

ChemiClean wont do anything with this. Its Green Hair algae, Pull as much as you can and reduce white light intesity for 4-5 days. Add cleaner snail crew such as Turbo grazer, astrea, trochus, cerith and about 12 small caribbean blue leg hermits. Theses will finish cleaning and prevent future growth.
Is tank at or near a window?
Are you using ta water from faucet or RODI water ?
