Hello, I'm going away on vacation soon so was thinking of trying a blackout
on my tank to get rid of an algae that seems to be a cross between BGA and
Green Spot. It grows super quickly on the glass (1 day to become
noticeable) but comes off very easily even when left for a while. In light
coats it comes off and disperses into the water like dust, in thicker coats
comes off as a slime (looks like blue-green sludge). Doesn't effect the
plants but I'm tired of cleaning the glass every other day.
Anyway I'm going to be away for 5 days and was wondering about the effect on
fish during a blackout. I have a automatic feeder but I won't be able to
use that if everything is blacked out. So can fish handle 5 days without
food? Got mainly neons, glowlights, clown loaches, algae eating shrimps.
