Algae Issue HELP!! HELP!!
I've got an issue with one of my tanks. I've got this brown algae stuff that is growing very fast. I can clean it off and within 6 days its taken over the tank again. Its in my Cichlid tank so I cant put any kind of algae eater in there. I did try a Pleco this past Sunday.... he survived about 24 hours before the Cichlids got him. I looked at him at 3:30pm and all was fine then my wife looked in the tank about an hour later and his eyes were gone and he was still alive at that point but I had to put him down. The tank is not in direct sunlight but the room gets light (indirect). Also the algae has a very strong smell to it. My lights i've got 2 36 in 30watt bulbs and 1 50/50 24inch blub. If Im not able to get this under control soon then I'm going to scrap this tank. Thanks for any help or advise on this.
