Introduction to algae issues

Spirogyra - Silk Algae, Water Silk

user posted image

QUOTE
This algae doesn't appear in polluted water systems but in ones that are eutrophic, rich in nutrients (liquid ferts, CO2 and light).


Cladophora algae

user posted image

QUOTE
Cladophora is a branching, green filamentous alga, that forms a moss like structure. This algae doesn't appear to be slimy


Black-Beard Algae (BBA), Red-Brush Algae

user posted image

QUOTE
Unstable CO2 levels will induce BBA! The best way to combat Brush algae is by maintaining CO2 at 30ppm, nitrates at 15ppm and phosphates at 0.5ppm. Leaves that are badly overtaken should be discarded. Siamese Algae Eater will eat BBA


Green Dust Algae (GDA)

user posted image

QUOTE
Green Dust Algae are actually zoo-spores and are commonly found on aquarium glass. They form a dusty looking, green patchy film and in severe cases can cover the whole aquarium glass


Green Spot algae

user posted image

QUOTE
Green Spot Algae prefer direct light. It forms green spots on aquarium glass and slow growing plants that are exposed to strong light. This algae will appear if CO2 and Phosphate (PO4) levels are low


Staghorn algae

user posted image

QUOTE
Higher ammonia/ammonium levels (overstocking and substrate disturbance) and low CO2 levels will favour this algae. Its been known that the Siamese Algae Eater will keep this algae in check. Nutrient control and plant pruning will limit Staghorn algae.
Thread algae

user posted image

QUOTE
Thread Algae grows on leaf edges as a single, up to 30cm long, thread. It is easily removed by twirling a tooth-brush around it. Excess iron is a possible reason


Green Beard Algae

user posted image

QUOTE
It will show up in planted tanks with low CO2 and NO3 levels. This algae can be found in low and high pH waters. Green Beard Algae is very common in non-planted aquariums.The best way to control this algae is with the Neritina sp Zebra snail that will eridicate it. Siamese Algae Eater, Plecostomus spp. are known to eat this algae as well as the Rosy barb and a very aggressive fish called the Red Tailed Shark

Noob advice needed.

My cardinal tetras aren't eating the micro flakes i bought for them..

1) they do not eat the flakes floating on the water.
2) food that sinks down, they take a mouthful then spits it out.. seems that they prefer the algae growing on the tank.

Should i get new food or are they just too shy to eat from d surface?
