Best algae eaters for GSA and hair algae?


Recommended Posts

@SeizedHad similar issues recently. Large scale hair algea outbreak plus some GSA.

 I got thing under control with ottos, a siamese algae eater and a handful of ramshorn snails.  

However, a 20 gallon might be on the tad small for an SAE, as they grow fast. 

I don't know if otos will eat existing long tufts of hair algae (I use the SAE to gobble down that), but in my experience they do seem to prevent it from getting established and coming back as they graze the leave and rocks. 

I went from algae-mageddon to clean tank in about a week and a half.
