So...from what I've read thus far, Algae doesn't appear to be a big issue in a tank. In fact, all sources point to it being a good sign that the tank is cycling.
My 5 gallon tank has started to develop green algae. Do I need to remove the algae? Is it going to cause any issues? Is it really a good thing, or do I need to watch out? Also, should I consider introducing getting some algae eaters, and if so what kinds? Are there other ways to manage the algae growth?
Luna (my beta) is the sole resident of the 5 gallon. I feed him 2 to 4 pellets a day and his tank is lit with a 10 watt from 8 am till 9 to 10 pm every day.
