    Hi guys,

    I have been battling this type of "algae" for some time. Currently just using my
    fingernails to remove it. It is very sticky and and quite unsightly. What exactly
    is it, why it appeared and any chemicals to remove it?

    Thanks!

    The black at the sides should be BBA Black Beard Algae. The green one on top looks cool man.

    I've got a lot of that in my tank, so what is the best way to get rid of it?

    Seachem Excel overdose helps. Best dose direct on the rock when u drain your water until almost empty.
    But what fauna do you have?
    Main culprit these BBA thrives is CO2 lacking and poor water flow.

    I'm pretty sure I have enough CO2 in the water and the water flow is quite strong (ie 2 x 2000l/hr filters + 1500 L/hr external filter). I'll try to find the seachem here and give it a go
