Question Staghorn in the Tank?

Hello All
My tank has staghorn in it and I have read that this can be caused from low Co2 levels Which could be the case because I haven't been adding Co2 lately. Anyone previously dealt with this and know any good ways of getting rid of it?

I bought some Algaefix because I have algae in my tank as well and have read good reviews about it so I'm also thinking that maybe the Algaefix may help get rid of it?

Thanks

~Graham

What are your parameters? Staghorn is caused by ammonia and low co2, like you said. People have had luck by spot treating it with Excel. Here are a couple links to some people who have gotten rid of it.

Excel + Staghorn Algae
