Karen B. Posted December 26, 2021 Share Posted December 26, 2021 Greetings! I absolutely HATE algae. And while in my 4 other tank I can manage it pretty well, with the occasional use of excel, it’s not working with my 20 gallons high. Twice now I took all the plants out and did the double dose of excel in a bucket tricks. It works, but it’s a lot of job and it traumatized the plants. I know if I have algae it means I lack something somewhere but I am really bad at figuring things out. I do use a liquid fertilizer and root tabs. I am wondering if a CO2 system (a real quality one like CO2 art) would help? Or should I invest in some drop testing first to try and identify what I lack in the aquarium to reach my perfect balance? If so, what are the main one to check? Iron, phosphate, potassium…? Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
