you are right though, makes sense that it's a normal part of a planted tank!
My algea since my last thread has gone WAY down though. My thaiwan moss looks bad though. I'll have to post a picture of that so you can tell me what you think.
My plants are doing MUCH better now. Other then the thaiwan moss that is.
Algae on the tank glass is not problematic, though depending upon what it is, it might suggest an excess of fertilization, or light. I use one of those sponge scrapers on the front glass of all my tanks every week during the water change, even though I may not see anything. Rarely do I do the other sides, but in my 90g only I do. For some reason algae is more prevalent in this tank, even though the water, fertilization, light, fish load is basically the same in all 7 tanks. I experimented and by reducing the liquid Flourish to once per week (other tanks are getting more) it deal with the algae, or considerably slowed it.
Post the photo of the moss, I'll see if I can help. B.
