diatoms

  1. why don't diatoms last ?

    Advanced Freshwater Discussion
    sudden curiosity. why don't diatoms last ? they're commonly seen as an issue with new tanks only why ? if someone wanted, why couldn't they culture these in their tank for their fish on a more indefinite scale? reading an article elsewhere raised this curiosity with me.
  2. encouraging algae growth

    Beginner Planted Aquarium
    I know this seems like an odd question, but how can I make more algae and diatoms grow in my fish tank? The first fish I ever had in my tank are otos. I love them! anyway, I have never seen even a spot of algea since I started this tank. It would be really nice if they had some algea to eat...
