Algea!

Hey everyone, I have my first signs of algea in a 5.5 gal planted betta tank. Im seeing the algea on my moss balls, plants and starting to grow on the tank wall. Should I get snails? How many and will my betta have any issues with them? Thank you!

Hey there...I just planted my tank, so I don't know much about algae yet..you should post this under the "planted tank" heading for quicker responses. I don't think snails help with algae..you may be getting too much light...hope someone with more experience can advise you.

How long are the lights on, what type of light, how many kelvins, how many watts, what types of plants, and what do you use for ferts.
