My two divided betta tankskeep on having an massive algae issue. Been like this ever since I set it up. Now I hear seeing algae growth is a good sign of a healthy tank, buts it just annoying to look at all the time! I have to take things out at lease once a week and clean it all. I have 1 snail that I trade out sides for him to clean, but he can't even keep up with it. My lighting is on timers. Goes on around 9am and shuts off around 9pm. My tanks are not by windows.
I rather not use chemicals so is there anything that I could do to just make it less other than constantly cleaning things?
