I cant show a pic because my old pc
doesn't allow me to hook up my camera. BUT..I have this lime green algae that only grew on the silicone parts of my tank. It scraped off but now the silicone is stained lime, glow in the dark green.
I thought this happened because of lighting.
THEN, my roomie took care of my tank and kept the light on too much, 60 watt coralife 50/50 and some of my tank may have accidently gotten full sun. Brown algae grew all over everything AND stained my shells etc.
I scrubbed off both algaes, tested everything. Tank is cycling and everything is good..nitrite/nitrate is dark purple when tested. Not ready for fish yet...
knows about the green algae, what caused it and why it is only on my seams.
Please wb if you know anything. Thanks!
