View Full Version : Anubias - Brown Algae/Detritus?

03-25-2012, 05:31 AM
I have several anubias attaches to various things in my 60 gallon tank, and I've noticed that some of them are doing great and some of them have problems with a brown algae/worms that prevent light reaching the leaves. I have been doing everything I can to prevent this from happening a lot, but sometimes it seems like I can't get to this problem in time. Any recommendations on something that eats brown algae? I have corydoras catfish, bumblebee cats, and a plecostamus, but I'm not sure the bumblebees will touch it since they're carnivorous, and my corys could care less about plants and want algae wafers instead lol.

Sounds like either black brush algae or diatoms

Maybe google a few pics of both to see
