Dont know if you`ve seen this plan but try this battle plan. One thing to keep in mind is that it didnt start overnite and it`s not going to go away overnite. If you cut out some of those fuel factors in that link it will slowly but surely disapear. JME

Yeah I do most of the thing on that list and the algae is slowly disappearing! The problem was that I was using tap water before but now I have an RO/DI unit and it is helping! I was just wondering if a lawnmower blenny would maybe help or scraping the algae off! I just don't want to take my LR out of the tank
