algea
« on: February 28, 2012, 01:52:38 PM »

Just wanted to say...kind of excited. The brown algae in the big tank is giving way to green algea now. I noticed a little bit last week, and then a whole bunch more today on the walls.

Is that a good, natural thing?

The brown algae was really covering the tank just a few weeks ago but I read a tip from somewhere, to wipe it with a paper towel and get it out of the tank that way.  Just wipe it and remove the towel, don't squeeze it out in the  tank. It seems like that helped but now I see green algae coming. Currently Sebastian has only one plant in his tank, a sick java fern. I even took the frogbite out because he was trying to eat it. I know I need more plants in the tank, it's just a matter of trying to find some he won't eat.

Green algae is very good Cheesy It's a sign of good water quality, most likely meaning that your tank is finally having a nice healthy ecosystem of it's own Smiley
