    Alge deranjante.

    La Multi Ani!
    Am un acvariu de 100l,si vreau sa stiu ce as putea face in ce priveste algele.
    Algele sunt de culoare pe pereti le curat atunci cand schimb apa,dar pe plante,ornamente si pietris s-au depus in strat deranjant de gros.
    Am si doi melci galbeni care par melci de curte din cauza algelor(maro)
    Voi ce faceti pentru a mentine algele la un nivel normal(am inteles ca ele,algele sunt mancate de pesti si melci...dar,sunt inestetice).
    Multumesc anticipat pentru sfaturi.GS.

    lumina este problema ,ori prea mult albastru in spectru ori prea mult timp lasata pe zi
    solutie ;reducerea luminii daca este de calitate la 6 ore pe zi si se creste treptat la o saptamana la 6,5 ore pana la max 10 ore
    jbl solar color este un neon care ajuta algele ,nu recomand
    nici o fapta buna nu ramane nepedepsita

    Alge brune - diatome.

    Brown Algae (diatoms) are more likely to appear in low-light aquarium and new set-ups, with excess silicate acids (SiO2). Its been known that strong lights make this algae go away, but they might still be seen on lower, shadowed, plant leaves. It can also be found on aquarium glass, gravel and decoration. It can be easily removed manually, since it has a soft/slimy structure. Otos (this catfish relishes this type of algae) and Snails can easily keep this algae in low numbers.
    Brown Algae, or diatoms, often present themselves as a brown, muddy, muck that covers plant leaves and hardscape items. It is rare to be seen in a fully established aquarium.


    Newly setup tank - Aquariums that have just been setup seem to be prone to diatom algae.
    Excess nutrients - Silica in particular appears to be a trigger. Contact your water utility company for a report detailing silica concentrations in your water supply.
    Possibly old bulbs - Sometimes, old bulbs can encourage the conditions for diatom algae.


    Description Forms in brown patches on the glass, substrate and plants.
    Cause Usually found in newly setup tanks due to silicates and ammonia as the filter and substrate have yet to mature.
    Removal Can be vacuumed out or wiped of the glass with a soft cloth. Usually disappears after a few weeks when the tank has matured. Otocinclus will eat it.
