thank you guys ill update in a bit
That is why I had to share it, I remember the feeling of giving up especially when you have done everything everyone recommends and it doesnt work :-[
I am where you are now. I have reduced lighting/feedings, water changes. I decided last night after scrubing & hand picking the algae, its time for algaefix.
I wouldn't start with the recommended dose though. From what I read the product has killed fish before if it's not measured out correctly. It's probably a good idea to start with 1/3 of the dose.
a seahare might work
i had a lot of gha in my tank,loads of it,thats until i discovered aquakat tank clear,1ml a day for 7 days then 1ml every 7th day and its all gone,its on ebay,no chemicals all plant based hope this helps
+1 I started with half and dosed every 4 days for a total of 4 doses and it cleared up
im going to try new lighting as mine are a year old, i was told after a certain point the lights actually grow algae a LOT more
im also going to get a bristle tooth and a sea hare
Good idea! keep us updated on your progress
All of that will help. For sure manual removal will help tons as well....I started usinng biopelets in a reactor and wow what a difference. I have 2 sea hares in a 55gallon tank I too was tryinng everything...now I wish I could get my problem back lol...I love my sea hares but so long as my reactor and my skimmer are running I don't see any gha coming back any time soon even with my huge overfeeding problem...what can I say I like fat fish hehe
