algae. esp. hair


Recommended Posts

whats the best solution to getting rid of thse hair algae?

is there a good solution you can buy to prevent or get rid of this?

i take the stuff out and it grows quite fast with this light of mine.

mainly on the top areas.

i got a true siamensis the other day and might add another one to help it along. but just wondering if anyone knows what's good product wise.

im guessing its a comunity tank 'cause if it had mbuna in it there'd be no problem.

id just go with flying foxes, i think on this forum they call them siamese algae eaters but no one has ever told me if they are different.

but maybe check out these pictures,
