How do i get rid of black brush algae?
I have had black brush algae since I setup my freshwater aquarium and I've managed to keep it under control. About 3 weeks ago my actinc bulb burnt out and i replaced it with an 18000k bulb and i have a 6400k bulb as well in my two lamp fixture. I have also reduced my light on time by 2 hours. this is very frustrating. I am starting my tank over from scratch with all new substrate and rock soon and want this algae gone.
Is there any safe algaecide that i can use that wont hurt or kill my plants or fish?
