    Thanks Boof and Nat,
    Yeah, I forgot to mention also that the frogbit Tom sent me never did do well either, which surprises me...it seemed fine at first, new root shoots and everything, then it all just started turning brown and falling apart...it was the second batch he sent me, neither panned out well

    I'll definitely cut back on the lighting, and yeah Nat, I'll try the HW and/or water lettuce if you send some my way...not sure how well they'll fare being shipped right now though, this is the 5th day in a row we're under a heat advisory...supposed to get up the 97F today, with humidity in the 80's...this weekend was unbearably hot

    Anyhow, here's the vid with the flowing green hair, lol

    That algae is a little spooky. I love the coloration on your Betta's fins. He's a very handsome guy.

    Yes, the one big plant in the middle is anubia, as is the small ones attached to the DW...thanks for the tip, less light it is....

    "Excel bomb"?

    I do have Excel, don't even remember why I bought it, lol...maybe it was for when this tank had all of that alien gunk in it?

    You can directly squirt the excel onto the algae, just keep up the dosing.

    I'd increase water change volume and frequency as opposed to dosing with Excel or H2O2. Those will kill off the algae that is already growing, but are band-aids that don't address the underlying cause of the outbreak; the nutrient levels. Unless your source water is high in ammonia/nitrates, performing large water changes will drop nutrient levels in the tank quicker than any plants will.

    Don't be afraid to remove the majority of water in a single WC. As long as you're matching water temps, you could easily drain the water down to just a few inches without any ill effects.
