Oh, green water woes.
My 40g tank has been problem free for a long time;
crystal clear and healthy.
I went on vacation and came back to find it full of pea
green soup, yuk.
Problem is, I have tried all of the remedies seen on the
web and I still have green, cloudy water, albeit a little
bit less green.
What I've tried:
1. darkened the tank for three days
2. added flocculent (Kent's Pro Clear) to bind the
algae so the filter could pick it up.
3. Used a System 1 diatom filter for four hours.
4. Massive water changes.
I still have green water. Testing and my knowledge of
the system tell me that there should NOT be excess
nutrients in there; I didn't have the fish fed during my
month away. The plants are doing OK, but their
growth seems slowed. Glossostigma has lost some
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
