Algea ID....help

Recommended Posts

What kind of algea is this?

It is on the back wall on the sand and on the rocks.

It is easy to remove but it just returns within a day.

Snails eat it but my tang isn't.

 

What can i do about this?

 

Nitrates 0 (after cleaning the rocks and sand it is about 1)

Phosphates 0

whats your light cycle? flow? filtration?

 

is your tank temp too high?

 

any of those things can create problems for a tank..

id say manually remove as much as you can, & run some GFO or phosphate sponge media. and a significant water change wouldn't hurt lol good luck
