Black beard algae? HELP!

Recommended Posts

s this the dreaded black beard algae?  Tanks has been up for 4 years and this has come on over the last 4 months maybe. I tried reducing my lights (time and intensity) to shot below on my AquaSky and feel like that made it worse or maybe something else was the problem and that made it worse? I have started dosing easy carbon (1 squirt per 10 gallons daily) and tracking my nitrates better to keep 20-40 with easy green. They had been low (0-10). I will be traveling and thinking of doing a 5 day blackout, is this too much? Anything else I can do?  Thanks.
