    While growing my dwarf hairgrass and micro sword using the dry start method, there appeared some green algaea on some rocks, driftwood, and on the sides of the glass. What should i do to get rid of it? should i get some snails or something? by the way there is still no water in it, except for the bit of water in the substrate. Thanks

    Is there any visible water in the tank? For a dry start to work algae free you can't have puddles of water. I noticed in another thread that one person (at least) did their dry start with the tank propped up in front, so the sloped substrate is back to level, keeping the water still below the top of the substrate.

    there are somewhat some puddles. but nothing like to obvious if you glance at it. everything is growing great though. however i have algea on the side of the glass above the substrate where the water never is, and i have algea on my driftwood. it may be from it being really humid.
