Hi! I have an all-glass 10 gallon tank w/ 2 air tubes/stones,a 50W heater(temp stays @ about 78-80F),a whisper power filter(model 5-15),an undergravel filter and i light the tank w/ one 15W flourescent tube that is turned on about 6:30 in the morning and turned off about 9:30-10:00PM.I have a 1" female black molly,a 1" female dalmation lyretail molly,7 black molly fry(about 1/4-1/2" each),6 dalmation lyretail fry(mostly 1/4" long), and a 2 1/2-3" pleco.I have had my tank set up for about 3 months.lately i have been having trouble w/ algae.My water is GREEN!!!!!!! i have been trying to do 15-20% water changes,i clean the gravel when i change the water and i feed my pleco before bed, 1 algae wafer, and my mollies get a TINY pinch of flake food 1-2Xs a day.sometimes i give Midnight and Sparkle(my big girls!) freeze dried bloodworms.I know my tank is crowded, but i'm trying to get rid of these babies.i already gave away 2 fry.I changed about 10% of the water today, and added a Jungle "no more algae tank buddies" tablet.Also, i went through 2 filter cartridges in,like,a month!they got so dirty, they quit filtering!I would really appreciate help.THANX!!!!
