I've been having a huge green hair/brush algae issue in my work 10g, so I bought about 10 amanos and ordered some excel. The excel just came yesterday, dosed initial dose today and planning on trying 2ml/day. Will post the results once I see if this is working.

Hi SvenBoogie,

Excell has done wonders for me dealing with algae issues, but it does not solve the underlying cause. I don't know what you are doing for light (watts, duration, etc) but you may want to rethink your photoperiod and cut it back some. I usually have problems with hair algae if I am providing too much light or too long a photoperiod.
Thanks, yeah I actually cut my light back today from 2 x 26w spiral CF to 2 x 18w spiral CF.

I suggest "Algae control" as the topic for the next GSAS meeting! :biggrin:

Day after initial treatment (5ml/10gal)...

Algae is worse than it was yesterday.
