trouble in my tank
ok i was gone for 3 days, before i left i did a water change. when i was gone my grandpa overfed my fish wayyyyy to much. and also my algae is out of control now, the brownish redish algae is overgrowing my pretty purple algae. my water is all cloudy...my tank is a mess. what should i do?
A water change would be good for the fish. i would let the algea take its course. Too much nutrients in the water caused the algea, algea grows out of control, it consumes all nutrients, and you scrub it all off when it all dies. Third thing i would do, never let grandpa feed your fish again.
Next time when you take a vacation, keep all fishfoods out of sight from your other household. Definitely, do a water change and minimize or stop feeding your fish for a few days. Monitor your water parameters. At this rate, you are likely to have ammonia spike.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
First mistake is letting someone feed your tank. But its alright lessons learned. Now its easy to get to this part now its getting it back. First stop or go to one feeding a day. Then shorten the time your lights are on, next do a couple water changes over a week to two week period. Last monitor your ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates. Thois poart will take patience. Like I stated its easy to get to the point were your at its hard to get it back right.
