Green Algae Update

By: Kevin | December 23, 2012

My green algae problem has improved leaps and bounds since my post in November. Though, still not completely gone it is very manageable now. Take a look.

I really need to be doing more water changes but have been busy moving to a new city and starting a new job. Over the next few months I plan on doing more regular 10-20% water changes weekly to bi-weekly.
I need more current in the tank to help reduce stale water which I believe is where most of the green algae settles. I currently have the two power heads in my tank however the current provided by these is very narrow stream. I’ve been recommended to get a Hydor Koralia Evolution Circulation Pump/Powerhead 550 gph. As you can see the stream on this bad boy it much wider.
