cam someone please help, my tank has started to grown the brown hair algae on the plants and rocks and wood and I don’t know how to get rid of it. I haven’t put any fish in yet, so I was wondering if there are any that will. Eat it

Many thanks tom

Hi

Looking back through your previous thread postings https://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/first-aquascape.58314/. Lighting is your problem too bright and too close the water surface. LED lighting is bright (intensity wise) you need to lift up the lighting unit ie suspend it from the ceiling on suspension wire if you can or try and lift the lighting unit away from the top of the tank - between 9" & 12" and that should help. Whats you fertz regime like - has it changed since your first thread posting https://www.ukaps.org/forum/posts/498146/
