Its growing all over my tank divider, fake plants and decor.
It's really getting annoying and looks like crap.
I change the water once a week, probably replace 3-4gallons (out of 10) per week. Sorry, but I don't have time to do it more.
It's not ever in direct sunlight, although my Theo Hydor heater keeps it heated at 82 (i have it set on lowest setting). I am getting a new heater b/c 82 is a bit too hot in my opinion, and the thermostat does not appear to be accurate in the least.. Could this high temp be to blame for the diatoms?
Is there any other way to control them other than water change and wiping them off? VERY ANNOYING PROBLEM!
