Hi,

I recently set up a low light tank. Nutrients and light are OK; CO2 will take care of itself.

After about 3 weeks an algae began appearing on the subsrate. Where it is visible I have been siphoning it out of the tank, but when I do that it is apparent that less visible strands have spread, with the result that the gravel is also being removed.

I can take care of that algae but I am wondering what kind of algae it is.

Thanks.

Bill
