That's nice. I have 5 true SAEs helping the hillies by trimming down the black brush algae as they try to consume the diatoms, green algae and red algae.hamdogg08 said:I thought it might be kinda cool to have a tank with a bunch of algae in it. I'd keep the front glass clean though! I was thinking about setting up a river tank and thought that it'd look natural to have little hair algae growing on rocks and/or a branch of driftwood.
What's PO4? I have green spot algae and it's making me crazy cleaning the front, yes it's only on the front, of my tank.fish_4_all said:Just don't forget to dose PO4 or you will be left with green spot algae and never get it off if you ever want to.
Oh, I had hair algae with a combination of black, red and green.:lol: SAEs eat them but the hillies will never do that. I simply raised the lighting intensity by changing into new ones. The old ones are getting dim.hamdogg08 said:Blue, your hilly tank is actually what gave me the idea. What are you doing to grow that much algae, and are there any brighter green kinda of hair algae?
Can we exchange tank water please?:lol: I never get to grow green algae which I assume is lack of phosphates as Chris mentioned. Plants are growing well but the green algae hasn't appeared just when I needed it.:blink:Holly said:What's PO4?

Oi! Some people have all the luck just when I need it.solareclipsed said:I now have green algea growing on all of my pieces of driftwood and not to mention all over the glass and everywhere else.
Seriously, I am desperate for green algae, Andrew.:blink: I tried Chris' suggestion of sunlight but only diatoms grew on the tub of rocks. What's so weird about this thread? Only the hillstream loach keepers would ever need green algae for the fish's menu.:brow:Andrew said:and the award for the most bizzare post goes to,,,, serisouly this is a weird thread.
Oh don't worry. I would never let my plants get infested with algae. The SAEs are doing their best to scrape off algae from my plants.amphibi-man said:Yeah ya know algea does look good growing on wood and rocks but not so much on plants...
