Staghorn or black beard algea... Help


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to get rid of this?  I'm not sure if it's staghorn or black beard.

I tried the hydrogen peroxide dip method and the Amazon swords became really unhappy with that.  

Is there something I can do without removing the plants?

spot treat the recommended dose of easy carbon or some other "liquid carbon" with a syringe every day.  eventually (it may take a lot of days) it will be gone.  You could try the whole tank hydrogen peroxide treatment too but i'm too afraid to try it.
