So I have had green dust algae on the walls of my planted aquarium for about a year's time, and I have tried a lot of different things, but no matter what, it keeps returning.
I have tried:
- large water changes;
- allowing the algae to grow in the tank for at least a month before scraping it off and doing a large water change;
- lowering daily light duration down to 4 hours per day.
Still I have had no success in getting rid of the algae.
The tank is pretty heavily planted 60 gallon tank, runs CO2 injection, and I use Flourish (weekly) and Flourish XL (daily). Though I have tried halting Flourish dosing, still with no effect.
Any help in getting rid of the algae would be appreciated.
