New 7 gallon tank, have questions
Just joined and wanted to say hello and ask a question.
My tank is 3 weeks old. I bought a Betta after 2 weeks, it finished cycling (according to tests,PH 8.4, A .25, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 0) about 4 days ago so I added 3 Spotted Cory Cats yesterday. I think that should be enough fish for a tank of this size. So, my question, since the tank finished cycling I noticed some brown and green algae. The plants have a good amount of brown on them but I did clean it off the sides of the tank. It doesn't seem to be getting worse at the moment. I was wondering how long I can expect it to stick around? Also, will this harm my plants?
