have a 10 g tank with one male.
I'm having a problem with algae, I am doing the 50% water changes a week, I have the heater, filter, and a real plant. It seems I've gotten nothing but problems since I started using natural plants. At first the plant was beutiful and grew and Harold would love hiding in it, etc.
I started noticing algae forming on the glass closest to the plant, and it just keeps getting worse and worse.
I wiped it off (for now), but I'm sure it's in the gravel too so, do I have to do a whole tank cleaning and gravel change?
I'm getting rid of the plant and go back to artificial hiding places for him.
Any suggestions on dealing with algae?
