Tammy Posted June 21, 2022 Share Posted June 21, 2022 After two months of changing the water every week 30%. After 34 days the water gets a little greener and greener each day I have had a little algae on the side of the tank once but mostly it seems like it’s just in the water I’ve discussed this once before and I don’t know what to do at this point I have a hang on the back filter do I need to add a sponge filter. It is a 15 gallon planted tank. It does not get the same amount of light every day at the same time. It is my granddaughter’s tank and I’m trying to care for it for them. Their mother does not want to put it on a timer because someone they know had their tank light cord melt and start smoking and it ruined the whole room and had to be repainted. So I can’t put the light on a timer. There is not light coming in from the window shining on the tank either.I still do not know if it’s green algae in the water but I believe it is, that being said do I need to cover paper around the entire tank to make it completely dark for one full week. I have about six plants in the tank that are doing well Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
