Well I got the BBA under control. Its all but stopped growing and I have to trim a few plants a little to remove the rest. Now I have hair algae. The tank hasn't been planted long (less than a month). My question is what causes hair algae. (I've heard so many things to make any conclusive theories) I'm guessing high iron? I use Eco- complete as a substrate. My WPG is 3.2 . Co2 is 23-26ppm. Should I just let the plants catch up and outcompete for nutrients? I have some Tetra FloraPride but was told to wait 1 month before adding ferts. The plants are growing like crazy but the hair algae is on the substrate and HOB filter outtake. Any suggestions?
