hellooo! my fish, rocco, used to have this crazy fin rot, so i put him in a QT tank to medicate for all that time. weeeelll the problem was that i completely abandoned the original tank (water changes). the light still went through its regular cycle. and i have no filter since its just a really large vase. he was sick for a good month and healed. so i guess during this time algae started growing. when he was completely healthy, i nuked the tank and put him back in his home. some algae was still on the plants but i didn't think it was a problem.
so now its been getting sort of out of control for my liking, and i wish i did something about it earlier, but we're here now so i'm really hoping its not blue green algae cause i know that stuff can harm the fish and plants (speaking of plants, they have been looking pretty crappy lately...)
sorry for the essay xD.
