I have been a little too busy and have not maintained my tank well over the past 6 months or so... during which I developed a severe problem with red hair algae, some cyano
also. I decided to try an ebay purchase "red mangrove pods
", which are little plants I put in my sump. I put them in less than 36 hours ago, and I guarantee that my red hair algae is now 90 percent gone. I was astounded when I looked at the tank just now. Thought they might work, but expected it to take more time. It seems like a miracle, really.
