I've have had my 55 planted tank up for about 3 months now and since a week ago my water has turned really green even after I did a 10 gap WC. I've also had a lot o
green hair looking algea. I got 6 Otto catfish to clear up that problem but they can only eat a certain amount.
Tank specs are: 2x 32 watt 6500k T8 the lights are on for 8 hours a day. I haven't use any frets for almost 3 weeks.
1x tetra 40 gallon whisper filter.
I just turned up the flow on the filter thinking that that might be the problem. Now the whole tank has at least a little bit of flow. I have been feeding extremely minimally too. I have 3 neons 2 rasboras 5 glowlights 2 small balas 2 small angels 2 rosy tetras and 6 ottos. Doesn't really seem like my tank is overstocked either.
The tank is moderate to heavy planted
