Green hair algae question

Recommended Posts

My question is about the green hair algae I have going on in my tank. I know the problem is caused by a imbalance of light, nutrients, and Co2 but when I get these parameters in balance will the algae die off on its own or will some manual / chemical removal of the algae be necessary to get rid of the algae that is now in the tank?

You will have new healthy algae free growth. You will top, toss the lower portions and then replant the healthy tops. 

If it's a rosetta type plants, simple cut off the algae laden leaves and remove them.

Good point.  I was assuming the balance was corrected and the algae was on hardscape.  Removing effected leaves is a great option if possible. .
