How often and how much water do you change?
And how long has this tank been set up?
Do you ahev any live plants in it?
Last but not least: What does the algae look like? Green slime? Fine thin long green hair? Brown lil bushes? Brown lil patches like someone sprinkled cinnamon? Green dots on the glass?
My water parameters: ammonium and nitrite are zero, nitrate is 40ppm. temperature is 78-80 degrees Fahrenheit
Eclipse system 3g tank with T5 6watts lighting
I do a 20-30% water change every week
The tank has been set up for almost 5 weeks
The tank has live plants and driftwood. and there is brown algae on nearly all the live plants :(
The algae looks like brown sprinkled cinnamon on all the sides. there are green dots on the front panel too
