Hair algae problem

Hello all,

I have been having a really bad hair algae problem in my 29 Biocube. I tried Emerald Crabs, and Hermits without success. I added a Protein Skimmer and UV Sterilizer......still major hair algae. Also all water parameters are WNL, I check 1-2 times per week. So I am turning to my commrades in fish tank arms. All help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.................................mardaman

How much are you feeding? a U.V. sterilizer will do absolutely nothing for hair algae. You have to figure out where the excess nutrient are coming from.
