  1. A while back I let this pain in the butt in into my tanks and for a while I lost interest and hair algae really got going. A couple of weeks back I decided to get rid of it all. The greying, lol, is the start of its demise.
  2. Hi all, In the last few weeks, I tried to fight nitrate war around 60ppm, now it is nearly 0 with help of lot of hair algea plus newly added nitra guard (two small cubes) and new 140g chemipure. Please advise what I should do to reduce hair algea, currently I need to use an auto toothbrush to brush the libe rocks when doing water change. Any short tips to try will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
  3. Hey everyone we have noticed a hair algae issue in our 4ft tank. The water parameters are fine and have spoke to Pet City who think we are just unlucky and recommend flying foxes. Happy to get them just need to wait for them to be available for purchase. I have just dosed most of it with a healthy amount of excel. See how that goes and decide from there on the flying fox but would also like to know what others recommend? Any options I don't know? Cheers.
  4.

  5. things were getting very crowded so i got a pair of scissors to my top tanks halimeda and all other coralline algae forms along with a few the things tost out, it’s looking a little bald, like me now,lol. Morphs multiplying,tubastraea multiplying and algae going nuts, the few acans and stony corals in here don’t have much room any more, so I think I am going to loose some of those as they get squeezed to death. The long tendril cream morphs are already finding it hard to have space, its not looking good for them, the purple/blues are much stronger and forcing them out by covering them.
  6. If My dwarf hair grass is getting algae growth but not growing a great deal itself is it not enough light? Thanks for your help
  7. G Day guys, You may remember me from such threads as 'Reef Tank in Jeopardy-HELP' Well I am pleased to announce it has been 2 weeks since I have had a loss, all parameters have been 0, temp and salinity have been stable and for the first time in 2 months, pH has not moved outside of the 8.15-8.25 range. Calcium is stable, fish are happy, coral have begun opening more than they have since I got them. Everything is so good it would seem that the Green Hair Algae likes the tank as well, but I don't. I understand that the algae is harmless in the sense that it controls Phosphates and Nitrates, but what I want to know is how can I control it's growth in the tank. I don't want it all over the substrate (Crushed shell) as well as over whelming what little I have of my live rock. How would you go about controlling Hair Algae in a marine tank without upsetting the , what seems to be the case with my tank, a very delicate balance of life. I don't want to remove to much too soon as it could upset the balance.
  8. I have a pair of Siamese Foxes that Ive just learned eat hair algae & i have non for them to eat. They have been eating flakes & pellets but I was hoping to get some algae for them to eat. I also would like some normal algae - i have 2 x 8cm (approx) bristlenose & 1 x 10cm Chinese algae eater & a crystal clear tank with no algae for them to eat.
  9. I've had this new algae start growing in my planted freshwater tank, it hair like, redish/brown, and about 5cm long sometimes longer. Does anyone know what it is and how to control it, it seems to be slowly covering all of the plants, rocks and driftwood. This is a small part that i took a photo of.........DSC_0085_01.JPG[/attachment:2cj7h92t]
  10. just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what i can put in a tank with guppies, blue eyes and white cloud minnows that will eat hair algae but not my plants or other fish.
