How do you combat your algae problems?

  • I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of algae and ways to get rid of it.

    What type of algae am I most likely to run into, and how do you recommend I get rid of it when the time comes?

    I was checking out this, and it's got a TON of information, but I want to get information from a few sources before I plot out my plan of attack. Maybe some of you can fact-check the guide as well, but to me, it looks pretty complete.

    Thanks, everyone, I appreciate it!

  • From what I understand, one of the most common and popular types of algae that you can get in saltwater tanks but it can also appear in freshwater tanks as well as beard algae.

    Beard algae usually look red and can be difficult to get rid of and a pain when it starts as it tends to grow fast.

    I would recommend cleaning your tank out routinely so that you avoid a big build-up of beard algae.
