As you can see I am battling a fairly large algae breakout out. Its a mix of brown algae ( I think diatoms), some type of green algae, and hair algae. I bought 4 baby otto's hoping they would do something, but they really haven't. What can I do to clean this tank up?
I am running an XP1, pressurized CO2, dedicated EI method, 65w PC lighting (thinking about upping that by adding 48w of T-5, should I?), and eco complete. temperature ranges from 77's to 79F. 29 gallon tank by the way.
Also, I have some sort of film buildup on the surface of the water that make my tank look like I have no flow. CO2 bubbles stick to it and barely move around, what should I do about it?
