RE: Snails carrying algae


I would suggest to *NOT* use the bleach treatment as there possibly is
something out of balance in your tank.  The bleach treatment will work
for now tho, but how about tomorrow?  As for effective removal of hair
algae do several partial water changes, introduce something like black
molly's, sae's and the like.  Also check nitrates and phosphates because
I am willing to bet that one of those two is high :)  Also you may wanna
consider co2 fertilization (if you are not currently using it)
