Algae on leaves

    I've got some Microsorum and some of the older leaves have green spot and brown algae. I've now changed my dosing and upped CO2, and the new leaves are coming through nicely. The question is, will those older leaves recover or should I just chop them? Supposedly they are chucking out Ammonia etc anyway if they aren't doing well and have algae on?

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Lol cheers :lol:

    It's wierd, the more and more I learn, the more I realise the last tank was a fluke :rolleyes: In the last week its been like the penny dropping as to why the last tank did so well and others not so :) I haven't shown this tank yet, all it needs is that Java Fern tidying up a bit, and the it should be ready for some photos :D

    I'll put pictures up as soon as the fern grows in a bit :D It's kind of iwagumi but not :rolleyes:

    Oh and can I just pull the mini plantlets off or will that damage the main leaves?
