I've been having trouble with what I think is hair algae in my 25 gallon tank for a while, and I can't seem to get rid of the stuff! I've reduced the lighting time down to 8 hrs a day, and I'am still getting it? About 2 months ago I got my wife 2 Shrimp for one of my other tanks, and I recently transfered my Rubin Sword from the 25 g to my 35 g where the shrimp are. And the Rubin had algae on it, but I notice the shrimp on the leaves yesterday and the algae is gone. Would adding shrimp to the 25 g help my algae problem? My wife likes the little guys so I'am probably going to get her a couple anyways but I thought I would see what you guys say.
