I would address the problem first. I have found throwing a larger cleaning crew, or fish at it dose not help very much. What are your water parameters/what, how much do you feed? What is your lighting schedule?

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I have a pretty bad break out of green algae from PO4 which I can't track at all...I added a huge clean up crew and they're not the answer, I still have to clean my glass every two or three days from the algae, and in some areas that my glass cleaner doesn't reach it looks like crap...I'd find the prob....I'm about to tear down my tank and move it, and I can hopefully solve my issue then
