Rusty Algae

Postby tomtheturkey » Sat Aug 25, 2018 2:25 pm

Hello Everyone I have rusty looking brown algae on my rocks so far the growth is not bad its just not pleasant to look at what would be a good way to remove it or at least keep it under control my fish enjoy it since my 15 juvenile Saulosi are herbivores I would like to keep it under control atleast could I add a pleco or something? Thanks everybody

Diatoms. They will disappear on their own after a couple of months...quite common after a new tank has been set up for several weeks or months.
