Two Algae Questions
I had a couple algae questions.
1. I think I have hair algae in my main tank. I have small green areas on my tank and some of them have grass/hair like growth. Is this hair algae? and because my tank is still cycling,is it normal?
2. In my quarantine tank there's a lot of what looks like brown diatom algae growing on the bottom and the front glass. Is this ok for the inhabitant or should I clean it all off?
Re: Two Algae Questions
I would clean the algae off you quarantine tank glass, and vacuum the gravel. Most of the time, brown algae is caused by cycling.
I can't really give you any completely accurate advise unless I know: How big the tank is, How many fish there are, if any, what kind of SW tank it is, and what kind of filter you have.
Thanks. My Main tank is a 30g Red Sea Max with 40 lbs of live rock only CUC at the moment since it's still cycling. Just wanted to check to see if it was probly hair algae.
My quarantine tank is a bare bottom 10 gallon tank with a Tetra power 10 filter. It has one Firefish in it at the moment. so I'll clean it out this afternoon.
Is the Firefish going to stay in the tank? or will you move him?
