I have hair algae pretty bad. Its not enough for me to try chemicals but it is enough for me to get frustrated with it. I've heard using a tooth brush will work, but i think i'll rip out my Rotala green and Hemianthus Umbrosum. Is there any technique or other tool i can use to take it out. My hands are not nimble enough to get it all out. I think if i remove enough and let my plant density improve a lot it will eventually lose its foot. I fertilize with everything and experiment alot with the ratio's. But even when i keep them steady at 10ppm NO3 1ppm PO4 i still notice very little difference in algae growth.
