UGHHHHH. Just got home about an hour ago, and when I looked at the tank I couldn't see Neon. Just shades of breen and grown. Yep, you guessed it, algae bloom.
I quickly performed a 75% water change and roughly scraped it off the front so I could check Neons condition. WELL, there was hair algae, diatoms, your regular everyday old green algae, and this wierd spotty green kind. I'm telling you, it's a nightmare. There is so much stuff that I'm going to have to completely drain and clean this tank. It's so dissapointing )= I have a feeling my light timer didn't work....
On to Neon. His tail looks less chewed up then usual and he doesn't look thin or bloated, but he is lethargic. After the big water change he seems to have perked up... Even with such a big water change, thet water (not glass) has the slightest greenish tinge to it. This algae was very messy, with lots of odd bumps and even a sligh fuzzy look. I'm a bit worried now that when I was trying to cycle the tank introduced some mold or something, because I doubt there are any white fuzzy algaes.
I don't have a camera on me, but do you think all these algaes going over everything and filling the water can harm Neon? )=>
