  1. Default Serious BGA & Brown Algae Problem


    0 Not allowed!
    So I'm experiencing a serious BGA and Brown algae outbreak, I've increased my water changes, removed the driftwood and vacuumed all the substrate beneath it, lowered the amount of time the lights are own and even tried some Dr Tim's waste away which I had remaining. My Discus have begun to hide and are now very skittish much like how newly introduced Discus behave. I see they're various chemicals such as Chemiclean (which I'm unsure if its freshwater safe) that safely remove cyanobacteria. I would just like some recommendations on what to do in this situation.



    Here's the blue green algae.


    Also you can see the brown algae on my background in this post which I assume are diatoms which makes no sense considering my tank has been well established almost a year now. It's mostly prevalent on the background and giant sword, which is much worse now, what to do?




    Thanks
