It isn't like regular green algae that you can scrape off. This almost seems like it is fused to the glass. It take 30 minutes to scrape off a small section if I can get it off at all. I have a scraper with a long metal razor type blade with a long handle. My tank is 125 gallon. I have trouble reaching to the bottom of the tank. I have to stand on something to do that. The front is the glass I can keep clean the best.
The back and sides are completely covered. I have given up on them. I've tried algae killers but they don't work. I think the stuff has spread to my sand bottom.
I went to the fish store and they said, I don't have red algae. I called the Shedd Aquarium and they said, you don't have red algae, red algae only grown in salt water.
I don't put salt in my water, but I do have red algae.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of it. I don't thing it is edible like the green algae. The Shedd gave me the impression it is calcium based almost like coral and I can believe that.
I don't mind the algae but I want to see my fish!
