EEEK not so nice green hair algae
I have what looks like green hair algae growing all over on the decs and glass. current plants are hornwart,red ludgwigia,moneywart,anacharis. fish is 4 angels 1 blood parrot,4 black skirts,7 corys 3 otto's. water prams are 0 ammo,0 trite, 5 trate. ph 7.2. i have a 96 watt pc light and 2 fluorescent one 30 watts one 20 watts. total 146 watts/2.4 watts a gallon. i have done a wc yesterday and cleaned it off and it had grown all back in a day. last week i added some liquid ferts by hagen plant gro. but did not add any yet this week. I'm going to order dry ferts at the end of the week.
sorry for the long post the Questions i really have is should i add more ferts and should i setup co2 and would that help starve the algae?
