Hi All

I want to put some pots in my little 10 litre fry tank and put it by the window and grow as much algae on the pots so i can put them in my Mbuna / Malawi set-up for the fish to graze on.

Apart from the obvious light and water and there will be loads of natural sunlight, is there anything else i need?

Would i need a small amount of surface movement (i.e. a tiny internal filter empty of media).

Would adding tiny amount of Seachem flourish fertliser help, hinder or make no difference to the process?

Basically, quickest way of making lots of algae grow so i can put it in my mbuna set up, i am hoping to do this all the time, maybe having 3 or 4 pots and rotating them in and out of the Malawi set-up once they are covered in algae

Thanks

Overfertilizing is a sure way to get algae blooming. Leave the tank in the sun and add some extra ferts. You'll have more algae than you could ever need.
