I'm not sure if this is the correct place, but the tank is fully plany
Ted so I hope so. I've got algae (I think its blue green algea) growing on my DIY dividers. Can I just use an algae magnet? Or would they come out of their holders? It's starting to look pretty bad and I'd really like a way to fix it until I get my lighting and dosing down.

Are your dividers mesh? I've not used an algae magnet but I'd think it wouldn't work well on the mesh. When I had that type of algae I would just rub it off as much as possible right before a water change then suck the chunks up through the syphon.

Ya, it's craft mesh. I'll try and use my special algae toothbrush while cleaning today. Thanks for the idea :)
