noticed today that one of my acei is now holding fry, has to be a new batch we just noticed it tonight while watching the tank. its a small buldge but noticeable when compared to the other fish inside.

so turns out what i had/have is not BBA but greenspot algae and hair algae, i get the green spot on the glass within a few days with the old conditions and same with the hair algae except on the plants mainly the moneywart and whats left of the creeping charlie and the rotella. today i did a major 75% w/c to get rid of cloudy water added a normal dose of excel and a single dose of flourish and also laid some cardboard strips across the top. ill post some pics when i get the uploaded.

forgot to add also took apart the filter completely and scrubbed everything down, the bucket of water i used was black afterwords.

never even thought of that, going to try and get some duckweed or water hyacinth to block out the light, looks more natural and will also suck up excess nutrient
