EVoyager31 Posted May 3, 2022 Share Posted May 3, 2022 I had set up a cherry shrimp tank to cycle before my shrimp arrive a few weeks ago. I wanted to give it time to cycle. I put in some substrate and java moss as a quick carpeting plant to achieve the look I wanted and from what I read— cherry shrimp love it, and some zebra rock. Everything was good before I left for vacation for a week. Im thinking my roommate left the light on the whole time.. because when I came back I found the worst algae outbreak I have ever seen in any of my tanksj. Unreal. I tried to simply pull some of it out but it seems to be woven in the moss now. Very chunky and very green. Can someone ID the type and tell me the best way to get rid of it? Should I just leave it and let the shrimp eat it? Will they even eat it? I threw some nerites in to clean the glass and they’ve done great, just not sure what to do about the larger chunky pieces. Shrimp are set to arrive in a few days.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
