Helen

an attempt to 'control' the regrowth of algae

Recommended Posts

allo :)

 

i made a tutorial about a week ago on what steps i took to remove algae (green and brown/black) from my tank. i can happily say that 7 days on, we're looking exactly as we were on the day of the big clean.

 

here's my video. i hope it gives you some ideas for your own tanks.

I use a Coffee Filter to wipe down my Algae in the Guppy tank.... I cant wipe and drain every thing, but if you can this is the best way.... If  you cant like Helen then what I do in my tank is wipe it all down with the filter on... Let my filter keep going for a good hour to suck up all that stuff. Then I will change the water out and Place a new filter floss in the filter ....

 

Great tip hun.... Either a rough Paper Towel or White Coffee filters are the cheapest and easiest way to get it off :)

i didn't want the algae chunks to get back into the filters since i had cleaned both filters a few days before :)

Thank you, Helen, for your effort in creating this informative video. I like how you emphasized about being careful to not get the algae that gets wiped off introduced back into the tank.
