Hair Algae Problem

John77

Hello, I’ve had a hair algae problem for the past few months now. I have Java moss and a female betta in my 20 gallon. I manually remove the algae at least once a week and just need some help identifying the problem. I have 4 nerites that helped clean the glass and rocks but they can’t reach the wispy parts attached to the Java moss. Any suggestions? What should I do?

Algae is caused usually by lighting. If you have a dimmable light maybe turn it down or is there a window nearby that shines sunlight in the tank?
