Default Re: Alage problem

I have a 5.5gal with a fluval 205 and a 27w light. it also has co2 and ADA gravel. The algae is like a thick green carpet. taken out of water its kind of slimy and stringy. Its covered just about everything while waiting for my nerites to be acclimated to fresh. I believe the java moss is gone as its covering the entire piece of drift wood and sword type plant is being covered. only thing is some fast growing foreground plant that is growing taller than the algae. cant be taken out with a tweasier cause its too stringy to get a grip on. the algae magnet works good for the glass gets full really fast and just turns into a algae slimeball. There are also 4 ottos in there which i dont believe do there job as they been in the tank from start up.
