    Hello all,

    I had a beautiful 55 planted tank and it now has been completely and irreparably overgrown with black algae. When the fish in there finally die ( I am still happily taking care of them) I want to know what I can do to eliminate all signs of algae. My current idea is just running bleach through the entire system total scorched earth. IMG_6100.

    That would work. But if that doesn’t maybe you could drain the tank and just scrape it all off? Beautiful tank BTW and nice fish. Are those mollies?
