Same here. My CO2 ran low a couple weeks back and bam! Plant growth came to a screeching halt and BGA was all over the glosso the next morning.Art_Giacosa said:In my experience, I have seen algae blooms when something happens that interferes with my plants' steady growth.
Yes, but plants also don't grow as well in hotter temperatures.. most plants anyway. As the temps rise the growth slows and algae gets a foothold. I've never heard of any relationship between oxygen and algae.JERP said:I believe that O2 concentration is linked to algae outbreaks. I have a BBA outbreak whenever we have a heat wave. It goes away after a couple weeks without treatment. The local lake/pond also has a nasty, smelly algae outbreak soon after a heat wave. There's a known relationship between temp and O2 concentration. When water temp rises, O2 concentration drops.
