Hey there I know how to get rid of most algaes (stop feeding quite so much, cut down on the lights, put more plants in etc etc etc) but this algea has me beaten... it growns on the plants and looks like very fine blanket weed Iam not sure if its thread algea as Ive never seen it but its not touching theglass as far as I can see just the plants and the red/purple ones at that, the big green ones seem haelthy and dont seem to be getting the "beard" as the other "fancy" ones have. Is there anything naturaly thaht can be done, anything taht would eat it? Ill try and post a picture on here if I can but itll take time, anyone got any suggestions in the mean time?
