I just recently bought new lights for my 10 gallon tank..a ahsupply 36 watt light.
Now I have an apparent outbreak of fuzz algae and green beard algae, not that thick but grows on my heater and back tank wall.
I've been dosing EI method, alternating days between micros and macros, have DIY Co2 but its 2-2 liter bottle system (its not really overkill my mixes aren't that crazy)
Plants pearl a lot, I just don't know how to stop the algae from growing. I've tried searching, but I haven't found answers to the causes of the algae, and how to stop it...well besides mechanically removing it.
I also have around 10 cherry shrimp in the tank, and an otto.
Any advice?? Thanks!
