Hi! So I've had my 5 gallon aquarium running for a couple of months now. And I recently just had live aquarium plants, but since I had them so much string algae has formed and I've been cleaning it Evey week but it just keeps coming back! So I thought it was the plants so I removed them and completely washed the tank and the gravel and all the decorations. Then I used fake plants and everything was fine until MORE string algae came (maybe I didn't clean it enough). So now I'm in a pinch. I have a ton of things to do and I can't keep removing the algae every week only for it to come back in like 5 days. So my question is: should I use some kind of chemical to kill the algae or should I get some kind of shrimp or something??? In the five gallon I have one female Betta and that's it...
