While on vacation my house sitter obviously left the light on nonstop, and I've fought the algae long enough and have not made progress and the plants are browing out and not doing well. I setup a 30 gallon spare tank where I'm moving my fish. I am going to start dosing API Algaefix (says it won't harm fish or plants but it killed my more sensitive fish last time). Are there any better products out there?

I am considering leaving the water low (barely over the plants). Is there anything I'm missing?

Good recommendations - I tried everything, blackouts for up to a week, OD on Excel, normal doses of algae killer, nothing was touching this stuff and the plants really started to suffer. I have a fleet of about 15 ottos, I scrubbed the tank and plants, did 60% water changes for three days in a row cleaning the filters each day - it was horrible. I got the 90 all tore down last night, scrubbed what's left of my plants, and have rescaped it. Just horrible - but at least now I get to buy some new plants!:cool:
