    When I had my big tanks I had the same issue maybe it's the water around here I don't mind green algae but this stuff is ugly as hell I try to rip it off but it keeps coming back. Any advice to get it out permanently? I did notice more since I started adding liquid fert but like I said I always had issues with it.

    It's only on my driftwood thank god not my plants but I don't want it to spread.

    Got a picture?

    A good majority of algae spreads more when you try and remove by hand. by tearing it, you can release those "algae spores".

    When I had my green hair algae outbreak, I made it worse by trying to pull it out so often.

    But the algae is coming from an incorrect balance of light/ferts/co2.
    What are you doing for each of those components?

    My cam is crap so you wouldn't see it it's not ALOT but its starting to grow more I have a t-5 36watt 6700k; I've been dosing http://aquariumfertilizer.com/index....ShowItemStart= at the lowest dose of 1 drop per gallon. Which has seen a boom in my plants in a very short time.

    I also just started today using api co2 at the recommended dose for my tank. Plant wise I have a lot and as soon as my big driftwood sinks ill be using fishing line to strap plants to it over the algae it's only growing on my big driftwood in the spots no other plants cover.
