The plants grow very well in this tank and so does the algea unfortunately to - hope I get rid of them soon.
Don´t look at the lily pipes and don´t view the pic in full size, (you´ll just discover all the ugly algea then.);)

Thanks... The scape is´nt anything special, but its only my second planted aquarium and it have been a great learning curve. It will be rescaped soon. Looking forward to do that! Making a new scape is IMO the most fun part of planted aquariums.

The problem could be the CO2, but I´m not sure. I´ve also changed between several brands of fertiliser so that could be the problem to. I have found out that its important with patience at the beginning and let the plants settle before changing anything...:)

Hi kjaer,

I was plagued with algae, then I found this post on APC and most of my algae problems have disappeared! It is also a good source of CO2 for a Nano tank if you are not doing DIY or pressurized.

I hope this helps!
Thanks for your answer!
I use a pressurised CO2 system, but have been thinking of using excel or easycarbo to kill the annoying tread algea.

I think the tank looks very healthy. However, it could benefit with some pruning.

If a tank is overgrown, the water circulation is reduced and nutrients don't get to all of the plants. Algae will take advantage of that.
