I have just recently started a night tech planted tank. The tank has now been running for about a month now and I still cant seem to get rid of the brown algae. Does anybody know how long does this kind of algae stays around for? My ammonia and nitrite levels are still up a bit. Does...
I have this brown stuff growing on my plants and substrate for the past 1 week.
Also I notice this stuff can be wiped away easily from the plants.
Can someone confirm if this is indeed diatoms and why I'm getting it after 1 year of having this tank?
How do you treat this?
