Usually freshwater "top offs". I am trying to use pure bottled water now from the store. It seems to work great! I read about it somewhere on this forum.

HELLO ElizaBeth!READY TO MEET YOUR FUTURE? Weird huh? Guess the chinese zodiac thing is right, we are soulmates maybe? Cant wait for Friday/Saturday, this is just too weird to ignore!

Hair algae is caused by a combination of...Water, light, and nutrients. Remove one of the components and no more hair algae.

If you list some more tank details (i.e. water source, filtration, tank age, water parameters etc.) we might be able to pinpoint exactly what needs to be corrected.
