    Tank spec in topic linked via sig... 2 x EI dosing. I can't use EasyCarbo or Excel on fissidens though :(

    Any advice?

    I had the same problem with my fissedens, the only way I managed to get rid of it was to place it in the shrimp tank ;)

    It looks very healthy though :)

    That second algae looks a bit like BBA or Cladophora maybe? Couldn't tell with the first type, looks like lovely healthy moss to my untrained eye :)

    Cheers guys :)

    Yeah, Fissidens is by far my favourite plant right now... just wish I had more of it :)

    My shrimp didn't touch the algae on it, even after a week of starving them :lol:

    could it be spyrogyra?

    very hard to remove if it is, it likes the same living conditions as plants. Just keep removing it and it should go away.

    I thought it might be Rhizoclonium myself :lol: iDunno. I've cut it right back, but its still there. Looks like I'm gonna have to scrub it off and start again :rolleyes:
