 Hi  Guys,
 
 Need  your  expert  advise/help  in  tackling  this  issue  in  my  planted  tank.  
 
 I  have  reduced  the  light,  increased  the  CO2,  stopped  dosing  but  I  am  unable  to  get  rid  of  this  Algae.
 
 It  is  quite  easy  to  remove  while  siphoning  or  manually  with  hand  but  it  again  appears  within  4/6  days.
 
 Has  anyone  had  similar  issue,  unfortunately  there  is  not  much  I  could  find  on  the  internet.
 
 Tank  Specs  30"LX15"BX18"H  
 Lighting  6  hours  daily  
 CO2  when  the  lights  are  on.
 
 Please  help
 
 Thuds

 Always  start  CO2  dosing  atleast  an  hour  before  lights  turn  on.  That  way  there  will  be  enough  CO2  in  the  tank  when  the  lights  do  turn  on.  Unless  you  provide  more  information  (pictures  or  description)  on  the  type  of  algae  you  have  would  be  difficult  to  provide  any  help.  In  my  short  experience  with  planted  tanks,  I've  finally  come  to  accept  the  adage  that  focussing  on  growing  plants  rather  than  on  controlling  algae  would  be  more  useful  in  controlling  algae  than  trying  to  take  drastic  measures  in  controlling  it.  I  started  my  high  tank  a  year  back.  Ended  up  with  cladophora  all  over  my  driftwood  and  even  on  java  moss.  Struggled  to  keep  it  under  control,  till  I  focussed  on  growing  plants.  Suddenly  I  realised  couple  of  weeks  back  that  there  was  no  trace  of  cladophora  any  more.  What  did  I  specifically  do  to  remove  cladophora?  Was  it  the  Amano  (never  saw  them  touch  the  cladophora)  I  added  or  addition  of  large  number  of  Blue  and  Red  LEDs  to  my  existing  lighting  setup,  dosing  phosphates  and  pottasium.  The  increase  in  temperature.  Haven't  got  a  clue.  Plants  are  doing  well,  and  that  is  what  matters.

 Go  to  any  image  hosting  website.  I  use  Imgur.  Then  just  drag  your  images  in  the  browser  with  imgur  open.  It  will  upload  automatically.  After  its  done,  look  to  the  right  and  you'll  find  various  links  to  the  images,  you  can  now  directly  paste  those  links,  or  copy  the  link  titled  "bbcode"  and  paste  that  one,  this  will  embed  an  image  in  your  post.
