asondhi Posted January 21 Share Posted January 21 (edited) As shown in the photo below I've been struggling with this persistent hair algae for almost the lifetime of this tank. Pardon the cloudy water as removing algae from the substrate disturbed a good bit of detritus It had started to starve out a lot of my plants which prompted me to do a heavy trim back and dose some topical H2O2. The photos show what is left after heavy mechanical removal. Unfortunately, it is impossible to remove it any further without uprooting my carpet Tank info: ~ 10g water volume w/o decor/substrate Low bioload w/ just a betta, some amano shrimp and 6 pygmy corys 20ppm nitrate, 0 nitrite, 0 ammonia. Daily dosing of easy green and easy carbon- 1 pump of each per day 6.5pH with lower KH and GH 74°-76° F 6hr lighting period from a medium intensity light No CO2 injection- I had used it previously but it just made it harder to balance the tank.
