Black Brush Algae solution

Recommended Posts

Black brush are really hard to deal with once they are established unfortunately. However, siamese algea eaters (Crossocheilus oblongus) absolutely destroy black brush algea, especially when they are young. I've seen them pluck away at the black brushes (see attached GIF), they are literally tearing them off things. Just make sure you get the siamese algae eaters and not the flying fox or chinese algea eaters (they look very similar).
