Re: NANFA-- stupid algae removal tricks...
Thu, 21 Dec 2000 19:21:49 EST

I have a big problem in one of my ten gallon tanks. Big slimy sheets of
algae cover the surface film. The color is a vivid green, and grows extremely
fast. Its definately not helping the topminnows I have in the tank, and
interferes with their feeding on the flake food. Its gotten to the point
where I skim all of it out of the tank every two dayd, but it comes right
back just as strong. It also like to attach to the numerous floating plants I
have in the tank. Any suggestions? Also, I have an extremely tough hard water
deposit on the outside of the glass. It happened when water was splashed on
the outside of the tank, and I didn't clean it up. Any suggestions with that?
I would definately appreciate it!! ___Dan
