How do YOU deal with algae?
Just curious....I have two divided 10g planted tanks (not NPT, just planted in sand substrate), and I am struggling with keeping brown/reddish algae off the divider screen. I have a snail and two otos for each tank. They go on the screen every now and then, but not often enough. Tanks are fairly new at approximately one and two months, give or take. Flora lights stay on for approximately 10 hours a day.
I bought some Tetra Algae Control, but it said not to use in tanks under 3 months. More algae eaters? Bristlenose Pleco? Any suggestions?
In the pic, you can see the algae starting again on the screen. Excuse my Betta's appearance - we've had a rough week with fighting off fin rot (which I think may have been from the algae outbreak???)
