Does anyone know how to get rid of a Black hairy algae that attaches to rocks, gravel,artificial plants.??
I feed them 2 cubes of brine shrimp and a few shrimp pellets a day..
50% per week? that seems like an awful lot of water changes... but if it works I'm up for it... any idea who chomped my knife fishes tail??
I do 50% each week. Water changes remove the nitrates so as you can see from your readings it is important.
80 watts for a 72 gallon tank is considered low light (1 watt per gallon). Mine is 3 watts per gallon. Black Beard Algae does not need a lot of light to prosper. It is the excessive nutrient that leads to the algae problem.do u guys think too much lighting might be the cause ? 2 48 inch 40 watt florescent lights?
I was thinking about shortening my light times but I really like my live plants and don't want to kill them.
