i have a florescent green looking algae on the colliseum. any suggestions on what it might be?
i cannot see it in this picture. by any chance can you take a closer one? preferably with a macro lens or macro setting to get a fine clear close image.
please describe it as best as possible, is the algae hard and smooth? ( coraline algae ) or soft and stringy ( hair aglae )
how old is this tank and what lights/lighting are you using?
tank is 4 months old, have coraline starting to spread. using standard florescent lighting. if you look at the tower you will see a highlighter looking color. this has started to spread all over. i am concerned that this may be coming from possibly the diffuser pad. i want to make sure this is not hurting the life in the tank. it is smooth.
Probably the equivalent to the algae we get on the glass, only you can't use a magnet to knock it off. You can use a diaper or pad to knock it off.
