    So I have that yucky blue green algae and I'm going to try a blackout. I have a 5 gallon cycled Betta tank and I'm concerned about water temp if I put towels or plastic or anything over it. I would think it would heat up? Also, does anyone have any tried and true tips and/or suggestions? I've had a Betta for 2 years so I'm kind of a newbie!!

    I've never found blackouts to work. Is this a bloom in the water or algae growing on tank/decor?

    If it's the actual water bloom the only thing I've found to work is Phosphate Rx. [​IMG]
