  5. Acronyms Galore!

    Hello, I have had a 50g freshwater tank for years and am looking at upgrading to salt in the next 2-3 years. As I research the forums, I see all kinds of Acronyms, some I can figure out, but others leave me perplexed. Can you please pick your brain and post some of the acronyms that you use and the description. Thanks for the help!!

  7. Planted Tank, Hair Algae

    Thanks for the input, gives me some options to look at. I have tried otto's in the past, to control the algae,they did not last too long, due to the 2 pictus catfish i have. Most small fish seem to disappear! Thanks for the help.
  8. Planted Tank, Hair Algae

    jvision, I have always been told that adding too much ferts will cause excessive algae growth? Do you think that up'ing the ferts may help keep the algae at bay? Any suggestions on how often i should be fertilizing? 2-3 times a week, or follow instructions on the bottle?
  9. Hello, I am looking for some help with my tank. I have a 46g bow front tank with T5 lighting (2bulbs) It is heavily planted, but the plants have a very fine hair algae growing on them. No real colour to it just a fine hair growing on all my plants. PH 7.5, NH3- 0, No3-0, No2-0, carbonate hardness 6-7d. Water is crystal clear, Fluorite substrate, DIY C02, lights on for 9hrs a day, air stones on at night, water temp 23-25 degrees. Weekly cleaning and 20% water changes. I am only fertilizing one a week with Flourish. Plants continue to grow, but any new growth with start to grow this fine hair algae. I have not tried Flourish Excel, i had a bad experience with it once (melted most of my plants) and have not used it in a year. It is extremely frustrating with all my plants are covered in hair. I am open to any thoughts and suggestions. Thanks
