24hr algae removal

Postby JustinK on 17 Mar 2015 12:54

This is both a planted and a community fish topic.
My 54l planted Cory tank was being overrun with algea.
I scraped, cleaned and cut what I could and did a water change.
As I was unable to catch some of my SAE's to move to the algae infected plant tank, I decided to bring the plants to the fish. Java fern and Anubis.
The swordtails were constantly at it while the SAE's were more cautious as the plants fell to the front.
Next morning the plants were clean. Now if only I could remove the substrate planted ones Cryptocoryne and Amazon sword.
