green water or free floating algae


Recommended Posts

I think I've had green water in every tank I've started under 20 gallons.  I get it under control by adding plants, even if it's just fresh cuttings bundled together with a plant weight so they can be removed later, and reducing light from my usual 12 hours per day to 6 - 8.

It won't be quick, but it will go away.

I have been eagerly following your progress on this. Would it be possible for you to post photos?
