I accidently left the AC off in my apartment over night (which I never do) and up in NJ we are having a heat wave, it was 98 today. the tank went up to 87 degress and it appears that the little bit of BBA that I had exploded with growth. is this normal when a tank gets to hot? I quickly cranked up my ac so the temps are down now but Im trying to figure out my enx tcourse of action. I turned off one of hte 2 fixtures I have on the tnk, and am thinking I will drain the tank down to about only 20% left exposing most of hte plants with BBa and spot dosing flourish excel right on them. I upped my co2 a bit (even though I run 30ppm + with a drop checker). Is there anything I can put in the tank to eliminate some of the BBA and little bit of hair algae. (its not that much but just enough to be annoying) I am going to trim off as much of the leaves and stems I have thats affected). Even if its temporary. Do cherry chrimp eat BBa? I know flag fish eat some hair algae. I was thiking of adding a a few flags and maybe an army of shrimp. Its a species tank with Tiger barbs (they are still small though only about an inch) and a couple ottos. I dont care if I lost some of the shrimp to the barbs, so long as they had a few days to do there jobs( the plants are the top priority in my tank). Is it worth it? any other thoughts??
