    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I've been reading all the articles I can find on BBA but I'm not convinced thats what it is. But I cut down on my lighting period a bit, I don't have Co2 so I'm not sure what to do on that account...Its been like that for at least a couple of months. No change, no increase. Recently I added liq ferts, as I had been out for a while. And now there is a small area growing on a different branch..

    Get a small syringe and fill it with hydrogen peroxide. Go into your tank and just blast the algae with it. It might take a while but eventually you'll notice it is gone. It won't hurt the fish. It just breaks down into hydrogen and oxygen.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Could I do this at a WC? While the algae is out of the water? Hmmm, when you say small syringe, you mean a needle type syringe? One blast would be enough, you think? Thanks for the help, both of you..

    Well, SOMEone in the tank has started munching on that algae.....I want to identify him so I can buy MORE!...{chuckling...}...I swear everytime I think I've got a handle on this fishkeeping business, I get poked in the eye! hahaha

    I guess I'll stop worrying about it now. Its food for somebody....maybe if i set up a camera...

    I'm so sorry, I never did report back here about the algae. Its no longer a problem cuz my Nerite snail eats it alllllllll up....yay.....happened to catch him one morning, grazing along...

    It looked more like bacteria than an algae. It's usually something that clears up on it's own, usually a couple of months, I have something that looks similar on my driftwood, it seems to come and go. It's not dangerous to fish and you can just brush it off if it bothers you, but your nerite will certainly take care of that for you.
    I watch fish. Really. I just sit and stare.
