    Hi, this is my 10 gallon tank that is getting covered with algae. Here are the specs:

    10g, CO2 ( 2- 3 bps in a power head) , EI, canister filter, shrimp only....

    The problem I think is here: 40 watts Power Compact, the bulb is a smarpaq = 6700k/10,0000 daylight bulb with a 420mm/460mm actinic bulb
    on a timer from 1:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
    The CO2 is on from 12:30 pm until 8:30 pm

    Can anyone help me with this ? How to get rid of this --hair algae??--
