Algae problem...or is it cyanobacteria?
Anyone have a recommendation for dealing with algae?
And, for that matter, I'm not totally certain it's even actually algae, it could be the blue-green cyanobacteria. It's greenish, and discoloring my plants and my divider. But, the water isn't cloudy, it's not fuzzy or sheet-like, it's just dark spots on my light-colored silk plants (tank is used for 2 bettas with both silk and live plants, live plants have been in the tank for several months) and a greenish/gray darkening on my divider.
My plants include wisteria, and something that is reddish in color? It grows out green, then turns to a reddish color. It's fairly big and bushy with almond-shaped leaves. I'm sorry I have no idea what it is...I just thought it was pretty and I'd try it...and it lived. :)
I don't use any tank lights, this tank is on my bathroom counter, and there are about ten lights directly above the mirror that are either 60 or 75 watts. Lights are left on about 12 on/12 off. The plants have grown well with that, so I haven't changed it.
I also use flourish to fertilize them every few weeks, and I'm using a well-sponged HOB filter to cycle.
I have no idea what information may help or not, so I'm just including anything I can think of. :)
Thanks in advance!!
