Wasn't fun, but it was a new setup, and I was leaving the lights on WAY too long each day. Put the tank in total darkness for 5 days, (covered w/blanket), and it was gone. Now have 10 hours of lite per day, no problem with green water. WOOO HOOO!!

Its always nice when you cure something and it all works out.
Look upon it as a beneficial experience, rather than a mistake.

Spot On, Grant! That's what this hobby is all about sometimes. I have a ton of experience, but the planted tank w/intense light, Co2, special gravel, that's all new to me. I'm learning more all the time. Learning more than i ever wanted to know about algae, that's for sure!

I can vouch for that, when I started the hobby a few months back, my objective was to just keep my 11.1gallon nicely flowing and a good selection of fish. 6 / 7 weeks down the line however, I'm now picking up a 45gallon and will be quarantining and breeding in the second tank !!

I think the moment you keep fish, thats it. If all goes well, you're pretty much hooked !

Grant.
