After a 2-3 month long battle with hair algae, I think the worst of it is behind me! I’ve been able to actually sit back and enjoy my tank . So here is a little photo dump of my fight and where it currently stands… Bowser (my Wartskin Angler) is enjoying the cleared up tank!

It’s only a 6 month old 20 gallon, but I’m loving my little ocean!

Awesome, what did you do?
I spent a long time one day doing manual removal with a small air hose and got about 90% of it removed. Then took out my chemipure blue and ran BRS’ GFO instead and the rest cleared up in about a week!

Looks good. I'm with you on the fight, though mine looks more like turf algae. Hoping a urchin gets me to where you are now.
Try the air hose method too, I was very surprised how well it worked! I sucked some up, then pinched the hose to pull it off the rock/sand/glass and it worked like a charm! Also look into BRS’ GFO. I was nervous at first and only trusted Chemipure Blue, but this stuff has worked wonders to help finish off the algae. I’m hoping it stays this way now, 2 weeks later and it’s still looking good so fingers crossed
