Black Beard Algae


Recommended Posts

I have had a bad outbreak of black beard algae. I have started to adjust my lighting and fertilizer to correct it. I will only be making small adjust to the lighting and fertilizer separately and slowly. My question is if I set-up a tank with some new eco-complete substrate can I use my existing tank water and one of the canister filters to cycle the new tank or will the water and filter have black bear algae spores that will contaminate the new tank. I want to move the fish to the new tank so I can give the old tank, stone and drift wood a good cleaning. I will let the amano shrimp take care of the effected plants.
