Hey everyone. So I have a ten gallon with one pea puffer, and 14 cherry shrimp. I k ow what you’re thinking, but they get along fine. Never any nipping. Anyways it has mostly fake plants with the exception of some duckweed and a clump of christmas moss. Eventually I want to go full plants, if my gravel is ok. Anyways since I have fake plants, theres been a huge algae breakout, which is why I got the shrimps. I can take care of the algae on the front pane of glass, but the plants are FILLED with it. It makes my tank look ugly. Now I could boil them in hot water, but is this a good idea since the shrimp might need the algae? Theres climps of it in the substrate and I want to clean that off too.
