What type of Algae is this?


Recommended Posts

Not sure what type i have here... it seems to have bloomed lately (the tank has been up for 4 months)

lighting is 4 x 36 W fluros

Recently this algae stuff has multiplied to cover virtually all my plants, it can be picked off but never seem to be able to elimate it all. I do have a SAE but doesn't seem to do craP..

any advice, or suggestions as to wat kinda algae it is and how to solve it.

It looks like you've got hair algae bloom in your tank. How much plants do you have? What type (ie. fast / slow growing? dntknw.gif ) And are you using any fertilizer? If yes, check out how much phosphate is contained in the fertilizer.

For further ID of algae and removal methods, please read this. wink2.gif
