Green Water Problems
« on: January 13, 2020, 12:34:06 pm »
I have a problem with the water in my tank turning green with floating microscopic algae.  I've tested the water and the phosphate level is low.  I have a good working filter and live plants.

Reaching for my pot of algae control liquid, I see that it says it shouldn't be used where there are live plants.  I can reduce the feed levels and maybe increase the frequency of water changes but are there any other ways of ridding the tank of its green water?

It's a 60L tank with a humble community of Leopard Danios, Neon Tetras and an algae eater.  I've recently had the sad demise of two good-sized (10cm) Clown Loaches, both within a week of each other.   They were about 6 years old.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
