Re: Green Dust Algae
Try filtering the water with a diatom as you remove it.
Try wiping the glass with a paper towel as you do a water change and toss each wipe sheet.
If you scrub the glass, make sure you change the water, a large amount, asap! The alga has zoospores which swim around and land right back on the glass and start growing again.
So if you remove them, they just swim around and land right back.
You can harass them and wipe every day and filter, UV, water change them away.
They do not bother the plants etc, but it can be annoying to many folks.
That makes it an ideal cadidate to study for me, but I cannot successfully grow it time and time again.
I get one shot and then I kill it.
I need to maintain a starter culture to work with it.
Staghorn, GW, BBA, BGA, and many other I don't, Cladpohora and GD I do.
