GREEN DUST ALGAE

Unread postby raaunnakk » Sun Feb 04, 2018 7:59 pm

Hi All,
I have been facing a persistent GDA issue.
Below are the parameters of my tank
Completely cycled with Nitrates close to 10ppm
Kh- Around 5
Gh- around 4-5

Tank is moderately planted.
I have been battling this algae for close to 5-6 mnths now. Water changes do not help. While doing water change i bring the water level considerably down, and then spray peroxide on the glass, and remove the algae with wipes, and then fill water. Yet they come back within the next day.

The algae has also settled on a lot of the plants.

Please help!!
Thank you

if you are using external filter then change the carbon, if not add some carbon in your internal filter.
