Coraline algae tips (on glass)
Does anyone here have recommendations to keep purple/coraline algae from growing on my glass? I'm scraping it off with a razorblade, but would like to not have to do this. It reforms pretty quick.
Nope, bigger razor blades. =) It grows where it will.
Now you know why some people are ok with no Coralline growing in thier tank. Some consider it a nuisance algae.
If you clean your glass periodically, it will prevent the coraline algae from establishing itself there. I use my mag-float every three days, no algae on class but where I cannot get.
Thanks Metal and Wake. I need to start that. I have one, but don't use it. I appreciate the advise. I do notice that it won't take off coraline that is already there, but you have a good point, in using it to prevent it from starting :-D
