Please help my fish. He is still as happy as can be, but his look worries me. I SHOULD ADD: there is a greenish algae growing in various parts of my tank. I have one Lucky Bamboo plant in the tank with a ceramic pot and rocks in it. The plant has a bit of the algae growing on it. The ceramic pot itself has the slight green algae like substance growing on it, as do both of the seashells in the tank. I have a net over the filter output to minimize current that is also green with the algae-like substance which I have washed in warm water and replaced.
Please help! Thank you.
