missriss126 Posted March 15, 2022 Share Posted March 15, 2022 Howdy! I've been a bit busy and haven't updated my own journal thread (a bit overwhelmed with so much to update!) but I finally have my Fluval Spec 2.6 gal cycled, and even with just 6 hours on a day I am having issues with algae, particularly hair algae, I don't care about the diatom algae but I'm getting stringy hair algae all over my plants! Granted, it is very lightly planted at the moment, so I haven't been adding ferts often (some anubias nana petite on wood and a narrow leaf sag cutting from my established 20 gal). My theory is that because the stock fluval spec light is so freaking blue that its causing some issues? i had these same issues in a Spec V that I had up for quite a while, and it was a never ending battle. Any Tips? I want to get this under control before I invest more into plants and stock the tank. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
