I've been having a horrible time with hair algae for a while now .. I finally went to my local LFS and they said that the amano shrimp will take care off them . So i got myself 6 of them and two bamboo shrimp cause i heard they like feeding off of diatoms and such, plus they're they look kinda like mini crayfish and they cant harm anything cause they don't have claws, they're filter feeders.
So hardly a minutes gone by since i dumped them in when the amano's start tearing up the hair algae just obliterate it ! 5 mins later half of my 6inch sword is hair algae free haha! i was so happy i jumped around and **** lols.
Anyway if anyone has any problems with hair algae or brush algae these buggers are the best period.
I'M SO HAPPY !!
