Re: [aquatic-plants] alga identification
I have taken into consideration all the information
and have tried the following:
I made two (2) water changes (about 15% each time) in
the space of four (4) days and using the siphon as a
vaccum cleaner on the plant leaves. It really pulls
the algae off without any effort. This has resulted in
a reduction of about 75% in the algae content. I will
do another water change (same amount) in a few days.
Also I have added two (2) other fish and will add
still one more after the next water change. This is
due to the fact that I am completely taking down a few
tanks for an annual overhaul. My maximum fish load per
tank is about 5 gallons of water per fish.
Till next time.
