I have gross looking brown algae growing in my tank, I know algae is going to happen. Any reasons why it's be brown instead of green? I don't like the brown.
Honestly, I don't supplement. There is always some brown algae in my tank. And since they are so small, they don't need to eat much. But then again my tank is already mature, more than a year old now. So everything is balanced meaning I am producing algae but not enought that its a problem. But enough to keep my algae eaters fed. I do feed my Pleco cucumber, and the ottos pile up on that to eat. So I guess you could feed them cucumber if there is no algae left in the tank.I've read that feeding them can be hard if they eat the algae to fix, do you supplement and if so with what?
