Algae on anubias?
My anubias nana has some sort of algae on it.
Can someone please tell me what this is on it and how I can get rid of it. I have tried to rub it off with my fingers but it would not come off.Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.
It is Ldoerr NOT Idoerr.

That's BBA. You can give it a mild bleach dip in 19 parts water to one part bleach......about one minute only. But it looks as you also have BBA on the plant near it. You should get some Excel and start dosing the tank, I guess.

This happens in my tank occasionally. I stop feeding my shrimp for a few days. Then they attack the algae with renewed energy. The malaysian trumpet snails, who normally go after shrimp pellets as well, also attack the algae.
