Question Hair algae

Has anyone had success in eliminating hair algae? Have been battling this for awhile on one of my tanks and can not seem to get rid of it. Appreciate any suggestions.

My boyfriend use to have a serious hair algae problem. He installed co2 and it's all gone now. It's quite expensive though so another option would be cover your tank and make it pitch black for a couple of days. Fish can go like 20+ days without food so don't worry too much about them.

Actually I have CO2 on tank. I read some things on bleach dips last night. I may try that and see how it works. Beautiful fish on your avatar!

Bleach dip works as long as you make sure you rinse off all the bleach with dechlorinated water. Make sure your plants don't exceed 30 seconds for each plant dip. Also, thank you. That's Zeus.
