I have a 10 gallon tank with 2 bettas, 2 AFD's, 2 ghost shrimp, and 3 pieces of bamboo. I'm not sure what the light wattage is because I can't find the extra bulbs at the moment. They aren't flourensent.
I never had any algae with just the bettas and frogs in the tank. Ever since I added the shrimp and bamboo, I've had horrible algae growth. I think it started after adding the bamboo and not the shrimp but I'm not positive.
I don't really have a problem with algae on the walls. It likes to grow mostly on the divider and everywhere else, including on the bamboo. I've had to clean the divider twice and the stuff in the tank once in a week. Is there anything I can do to keep up with the algae growth? I was thinking of maybe finding a 2 or 3 gallon tank to put the other betta in so there wouldn't be a divider but I think the algae would just go everywhere else.
