algae- how to best control it!
i know algae, when under control is not a terrible thing- and I am not one of those people who want to eradicate it completely from my tanks, but i have a little algae issue in my 30 gallon. I have tried, cutting the light back 1-2 hours per day, adding a plant, more frequent water changes, and reuced feeding slightly. what else can i do?
currently the light is on 10 hours a day, and its a flora glow floresent light. i have 10 small fish in the tank right now- i feed them correctly. i have two plants, a small clump of java moss, and a moss ball.
the algae is mostly brown slime (diatom?) on the glass, and towards the top of the hood, there is some green/blue alagae on my airline tube.
