Red dwarf Lilly bulb algae

Recommended Posts

I got this red dwarf Lilly bulb from aquarium co-op in the Mail and put it in the tank 4 days ago. From the time I left for work this morning to the time I got home tonight it grew a cover of algae. This is a new 75g tank and I don’t have any algae yet or algae eaters. Should I be worried and if so what should I do? Thank you for all of your help. This is a great forum with great helpers.

Totally natural and normal. If you don't have any algae eaters in there yet, the algae should eventually die off on its own as the plants grow and take up all the nutrients. But I wouldn't be surprised if you have a couple of snail stowaways on some of your plants that can take care of it.
