Hi Everyone. Been gone a while.... the flu ran though 6 kids and 2 parents... fun eh?
Have a question about Green and red hair algae which is trying to over take my tank.
I have cut back on feeding, don't have but 2 wee little fish anyhow.... lighting is 8 hours right now instead of 12 hr cycle.
Water is great, do Bi weekly changes.... issues are because my error in filling with tap water.
Test for everything but Calcium and Phos.
I have been replacing water biweekly 5g (29g tank) with good RO
water.... filled with tap water (ugh!)
I have been removing as much of the hair algae by hand as I can when doing PWC
, but any one who has ever had this knows it just sheds and flies all over the tank. I have been reading and saw that the Rock-lawnmower blenny is a good fish to have for this as they will also take prepared foods.
Before I purchase this fish, is it really a good cleaner upper? Will itr be ok once the hair algae is depleted (hopefully it will be)
All I have now is a small green chromis, who is about to back to the LFS
because he drives my green clown goby bonkers... and a clean up crew of 12 blue legged hermits, 4 large turbos.
Thankful for any advice.
