    oh, I'm glad you guys know what it is =).

    so how do I go about clearing this? I'm currently leaving my light on for about 8 hours. I don't know if there are any silicates in my water or how I would check if there are. by, "cutting the photo," I guess you meaning cutting down the hours of light? you mean fertilizer in the bottle right?

    You could try cutting light to 6hrs. Dose liquid plant ferts and some liquid carbon like Easylife EasyCarbo. I've found that is helpful in controlling algae and boosting plant growth...at least so it gets the upper hand over the bloom.

    The water authority should be able to provide you with a chemistry report on your water (so I've heard).

    I just searched "algae bloom.", and it suggested turning off the lights for a few days and covering the tank with a black cloth or something like that. I think I'm going to try it. I'm so happy I know what this is! thanks again guys

    Go ahead but know that you're likely to have it flare up again
