Same happened to me. In my case i took ADA Soil. Never again. I am not experienced enough to handle this kind of Underground. I had a massive algae problem like in your tank. I also started new. I sold my Ada Soil and Power Sand. I took Vulcano Substrate instead of Soil i took gravel. After 7 Days couple of amanos, snails. And it worked out well.
The money i spent on the ada stuff was insane. I think a good mix of quality and quantity makes it also a granted success.
Sorry for my bad english^^

I always used fast growing, alleopathic plants in my aquariums, never had algae problems
The one time i made an aquarium with slower plants (tbh they were pretty much the plants in this video lol) i had the same problem, cleaned the tank everyday and finally got the plants to defeat the algae after about 1-1/2 months
Vladimir Stojanovic

I think everyone's been there, thanks for sharing. I had the same with BBA for over 6 months. Every ones different but for me I upped the gas exchange and was doing big water changes twice a week. Problem is when you try everything at once you don't know what works, but as long as it does I guess.
Plants out competing the algue seems to make a big difference in my opinion, wonder if introducing something like cabomba in a pot for the first few months would make a difference to try and absorb some of the excess nutrients (appreciate you probably know more than I ever will). I would have really liked to see you persist with this to see What the outcome was after 6m but appreciate it's a lot of work.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago
I was doing water changes every 2nd or 3rd day and I think that's caused more problems. My tap water is bad,and with each water change i was putting more and more garbage in my tank. Now I am using RO water and I do not have this algae anymore. Thank's for comment an thank's for sheering your experience.

Sorry to see your tank got what my tank had it is called dinoflagellates it is the aids of the reef and freshwater hobby! It closed down 2 tanks of mine and there is no known cure. As a rule of thumb the only known method to cure it is raising ph and nitrates they dont like it but its hit and miss. It seems to apear when either new plants or corals are contaminated and put in your tank. Dinoflagellates check them out ppl you do not want this in your tank!!!

algea dies off naturally, as long as you keep you nutrients and bioload as you should, but if some algaes still live in there, put 3-4 sae. these fellows will clear the aquarium and keep it clean like a crystal.

Gede Gunawan
Gede Gunawan - 3 years ago
IMO your tank isnt cycled yet, because of new tank syndrome.. Never use hidrogenperoxide again its useless. Algae = unbalanced tank. You cant be 100% free from algae but you need to control it. Even Takashi Amano tank in sumida Aquarium have algae in some spot, but they all pretty well handled by the balance of the tank. 10 amano shrimp and 12 otocinclus will enough to take care your tank from algae.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago

ApertureDG
ApertureDG - 3 years ago
Well, it happens. My personal experience tells me that algae will be in aquarium forever, but more or less, depends from tank bio-balance.
At the start, diatoms will appear, and they usually go away in 5-7 weeks. Then green hair algae will appear for same 4-5 months. Then will appear black hair algae, they stay for a year. And then comes xenococus, the green spot algae - an indicator of mature tank, (1,5 years or more). Depending on a bio-balance, they will grow more or less, but they will grow anyway. Using algaecides usually helps, but once you stop adding chemicals, algae will appear again, because algaecides don't deal with problem, but only freezes it for a while.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago
Exactly,Everything is in balance.... But algae will always be present at least a little. Even though we do not see algae with naked eyes in the aquarium, there are always be algae spores which are waiting for some disbalance to start growing.Thank's for comment.
Mike Bircher
Mike Bircher - 3 years ago
I didn't see a whole lot of water flow in there, which could have been very beneficial. Also, letting an empty tank cycle for a couple weeks with nothing but hardscape and substrate before lowering the water to plant, then refilling with RO is a pretty decent way to avoid large outbreaks.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago
In this moment I was using sump filter and flow was week. Well aquarium soil at the beginning release much Ammonia. That is food for beneficial bacteria (correct me if I am wrong). Thank's for comment.

Avi's Fishtanks
Avi's Fishtanks - 3 years ago
2 otocinclus and 8 horned nerite snails, and maybe a mystery snail just for fun. Would of fixed things. Ppl try to create these fishless tanks and wonder when things go wrong cuz they wanna control the tank like a science experiment. Instead of letting nature take course. Aquariuming is all about restoring balance of nature. In the wild you would never find a pond with no algae eating organisms in it. So why would u do it with a fish tank
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago
I agree, but this was not fishless tank. I had here 5 fish (bristlenose pleco). Anyway In the following my videos (if you watched)everything is explained.This aquarium is not designed as fishless tank,I love fish and I have fish now :) . Tank's for comment....Greeting

WOW... I don't even know how you managed to hold on for so long I would be pulling my hair out.
It looks to me like there was a LARGE water imbalance? maybe too much sun? maybe not enough plant nutria nice in the soil? Maybe bad filtration? Could be a lot of things.
you could have taken the algae covered plants & rocks out & spray them with a hydrogen peroxide solution then let them soak in a bucket or something for a few days while repeatedly spraying them. that totally would have gotten rid of it
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago
Pull out rock was not an option. I would ruin it my scape. The main reason for algae problem was my tap water. Now I am using RO water and I don't have same problem anymore. I managed because I though that it will eventually disappear,but that's not happened :)

I guess, you need to give some time before you use the wave maker, as your plants are young and waver maker could damage your plants? Im not sure, i did hear about canister filter, I do have 5ft tank and its could get around 750 litter, so how many rocks do i need? I mean if i go dragon stones?
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago
Thanks for link. But I have wave maker,but I am not use it. I have canister filter and its really powerful. Please check my new video. I bought this rock from my colleague aquarist. Rock name is Dragon Stone. Can be bought in in better-equipped aquarium stores.

you will love your fish tank

Hi, you have a very nice scape. As for the diatoms and algae, it is pretty normal for new acquascapes. What I did was introduced 2 amano shrimps into my 60cm x 30cm tank and they cleaned the algae completely within 3 days. No joke. Sparkling clean and free of algae. The shrimps love it.

Thank you for the video. This is the reality of most high tech planted aquariums but few people talk openly about it.

You made some very simple mistakes. The main mistake was to not let your aquarium develop a proper biofilter. Look at your video - there isn't a single word about the filter. That is how the modern hobby has become.

For a VERY comprehensive information on how to start a tank from zero and bring it to a more or less stable state please follow the link below. The book describes a professionally setup tank day by day in the course of the first month. The book is written by a person that worked for a company that followed the best practices of ADA and is a very good source of information. You will see that the first 1-2 months of these tanks are a lot of crazy work. There is nothing natural in any of that and that is why I personally do not like the so-called "high tech" part of the planted tank hobby. 9 out of 10 high tech tanks are kept just a few days away from serious algae problems. But most people do not understand that.

I have had this algae many times in the past. Its a real pain.  call it filamentous brown algae as it does not fit with any of the other algaes I know. I grows in low-light or high, its a pain to remove, spreads everywhere.
Very common in low plant mass tanks, I do believe it has something to do with the quality of the tap water, as I felt the more water changes I did the worst it got.

you could have also tried adding some fast-growing plants to slow the algae growth. In my experience adding a couple of golden pothos is a great trick as they don't mess with your scape. And then just be patient, it takes weeks to stabilize the tank. If you do this and reduce slightly the light with noon siestas, it should kill all algae in a few weeks. It will kill some plants too, but they can survive longer without food than algae, so most will come back to life. Then just slowly remove extra plants and start adding nutrients back taking care not to "overfeed" the plants.

please continue with this series. This is the same thing i'm experiencing too.
I'm thinking of starting without plants, with UV, and completely giving ozone for about a week on RO water but with correct co2, ph, kh, lighting schedule and filtration. after ozone dissipated, if this works without algae for about a couple of weeks then i will start adding some plants and start with the fertilization regime. I'm really fed up with spending money on awesome looking plants and loosing them at one point due to being covered with f.kn algae.

What are you using to suction the algae out of your tank? I have a Python water change system, but don't have great water pressure so it doesn't do a great job of actually cleaning the gunk off the substrate. I'm looking for something to strategically clean out food garbage and waste from the tank.

This problem happened because the soil is very rich in Nutrients and also because there are an excessive light... the solution: 1-2 months growing the plants without water in the aquarium, only is necessary to humidify the plants every 1-2 days, and so the algae not grow.. and also is necessary add more plants (all the soil covered).. This way the plants eat all the excessive nutrients and not grow algae. Good luck!

You had a typical new tank syndrome. A lot of ammonia was generated from the fresh aquasoil you've put, and there where no massive fast growing plants to consume it.
When you fill in the tank add some floating Ceratopteris. Since it will be floating - it will have unlimited access to CO2 and ligh, and be able to consume the ammonia; it will be easy to control its growth and completely remove it because its roots will be floating.
Cleaner crew like shrimps, amanos, ottos, mollies will also help fight the algae.

Thank you for sharing your experience,
Whish you better outcome with the new start!

I had the same thing happened to me when I started my tank(3months in). I kept yanking on those diatoms, hair algae and bga. Was doing 30% water changes daily which was the only thing I can do since I had crystal red shrimps in there already (no h2o2). I was terribly stressed with my ordeal because restarting was never an option so I went on a 10 day vacation!! But before that I unpluged my lights and co2, and when I got back voilà! No more issues! Some of my plants were a bit on the bad side but they recovered very well.

Lesson learned, when your at your wits end stop dosing and switch everything off except for the heater and filter.

Vladimir Stojanovic luckily no algae came back until now, i believe i was dosing excessively since my plants was still trying to acclimate themselves to the new environment they weren't that efficient on taking nutrients from the water column. Now that my filter and substrate are fully cycled my life has gotten very easy. Dosing flourish 5ml once a week and iron once a week. Sometime i get to busy and i have to leave my tank with my housemate for top ups(tap water btw), and it's still doing great!

Use 2xT5 bulbs instead of 4. I think that when you get algae, you shouldn't remove it immediately. You should try to find the cause; either excess lighting or fertilisers because if you remove thealgae, the cause of the algae still exists so it will appear in your tank again and again, no matter how much you remove algae, if the cause of the algae isn't solved, it will keep growing. You don't need to use fertilisers because your substrate gives out a lot of the nutrients. Just look at the new leaves and if there is any deficiency, dose fertilisers according to that. Keep a few clean up crew fish in there that eat algae and prevent films of algae to grow on plants

My first high tech planted tank turned NEON green. A sterilizer took care off that, but then the tank started growing hair algae like crazy, fortunately I got a Siamese Algae eater which dramatically helped. After that the tank became more balanced and the plants took off.

let me help u in thia case i m not pro bt I overcame this situation 2months age 1st of all for a good cycling becoz of new substrate and hi amount of ammonia do regular 50% water change for first 2 week atleast and start ur co2 before 1hr of turning on the lights for optimal conditions of photosynthesis give photo period of 6hr cause maximum 4hr a plant take to complete its photosynthesis and from the 5hr algae starts its photosynthesis so 6hr will not harm try to cover tank when ever u tank lights r not on avoid outside lights and turn of the co2 before 1hr of light goes of nd one more thing u can devide ur light hours to 2 part continues light hour is far better. do regular dosing and after 2week from the 3rd week do 3 tym water change in a week on 4th week 2 tyms and thn 1tym in a week will be great if u dont face anu algae issue this ia the process i maintained my aquarium something u need to do spot treatment of hydrogen peroxide bt do in limit other Wise u will kill ur fish and plants do 1ml/gallon dosing in spot treatment after tht do a complete 90% water change and remember one thing do not try to treat spot algaes with h2o2 cause tht is the symptoms of po4 deficiency so increase it little bit little until its gone and stop at thr start po4 dosing from 2pmm weekly.. and dont forget to add a wave maker for good amount of water circulation how much I can help I already did for any further queries feel free to ask and sorry for my bad English

Ah, and to think, you could have cleared al this up by just adding 3 or 4 Siameses algae eaters. They are an age old solution to these types of issues because they really get the job done. It is amazing to see how quickly they can clean up a tank with issues even worse then these. When someone says -"They ate it all over night" they are not joking, they really can clean an entire tank of every spec of BBA without damaging even one plant. Great video for sure and super informative.

that looks like a  nightmare experience. something between your lighting, co2, and nutrients were out of balance. I think you had too much light, too little plant matter, too low water flow. also were you dosing nutrients in the water column as I think that would have helped get the plants to out compete the algae as well.  not sure you can blame it on your tap water.

tomp rocks I agree with using shrimp. unless it's a dedicated shrimp tank I use amano shrimp. I've had to use ottos in some of my populated tanks over shrimp due to the mass of pickers I have. not as effective but they do the job

Sparticus

sorry to hear about that bad news, had an issue similar to yours i tried to add flourish excel and added daily as per needed.. well it did wonders for me it may come from your sand as silicates or the iron content from your tap water might of been very high. But non the less you restarted your project from scratch best of luck
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
I suspect the same, sand and tap water quality. Thanks.

I had green thread algae growing at the same rate of 1 inch everyday when I first set up my 300l aquarium. After I added 100 malayan shrimp into the tank, the algae was mostly gone overnight, and can barely be seen after another 2 days. The difference having shrimp in a tank vs one without tank is pretty jaw dropping. You could try adding shrimp if you get the same algae again after flooding your tank. Good luck
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
Thank you so much for advice. I will put shrimp this time necessarily.

Think it might be somehing in the stone you use. I have the exact same stone (only 3 pieces) in my tank, and I just can't keep the algae out. I think it has a lot of mud trapped in it, and it feeds the algae.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
It is possible, though I washed stone well. Thanks.
Evan Stepowany
Evan Stepowany - 4 years ago
I had this happen with using sand due to the silica i believe (probably wrong). Have you tried seeing if stuff like chemipure or polyfill counters something in the water... then you might be able to narrow things down some. Also saw a similar outbreak happen in my one heavy planted tank, increasing the water flow helped remove everything pretty quickly.

I feel your pain. let me share something maybe help you. same happen to me on my new build tank when I put co2 pressured for the week. Then, I controlled with slow a bit the bubble count. I put some activated carbon. and put some Siamese algae eater(Crossocheilus siamensis), Amano shrimp and Banana Shrimp. and lastly, I do a 30% water change once a week. You might need to control the lighting time, for me, I change from 12hours/day to 8hours/day. It worked for me and I'm not suffering with algae anymore. hope this help you.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
Thanks for advice. My lighting time was 8h/d.

Flyingdutchy33 - 4 years ago
While the dry start method is an almost sure way to prevent any big algea outbreaks, it is my experience that the brown hair algea will pretty much always invade a fresh aquarium. After 2 months or so, it will die off naturally as the relevant bacteria become established. Too many waterchanges is actually not that beneficial and seems to postpone the natural die off. Buckle up, be patient, and let your bacteria colonies grow in your filter/soil and you'll see that this awfull mess will actually sort itself out. Additionally, the more plantmass, the less algea, generally speaking. That's the core of the DSM too.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 3 years ago

Flyingdutchy33 is right on the dot in my experience.

I had the exact same algae take over my tank. I happened to be using the exact same rock and ADA aquasoil, it could just be a coincidence but I think there's something leeching out of one of those two that is causing the algae outbreak. I was pretty annoyed when it happened to me too because this thing just completely ruins the tank. But i figured at the rate this thing was taking over my tank it was going to run out of whatever is feeding it eventually. So I cranked up my co2 and lights so the plants it is covering didn't die and let the algae run wild. Long behold after 2-3 weeks of just letting it run its course, the algae completely disappeared never to be seen again.

I absolutely love your scape btw, I've got a small spare tank so i might use that to make something similar to this since I've got a bunch of those honey comb rocks laying around.

AND if your tap water has high phosphates, frequent water changes without treatment is just pouring in more "algae food." If you're on a well this would be especially prevalent.

yep this was hell. I also have some algae in my 200L tank, but they grow faster when I do less maintenance, for now I just keep an eye on, but not removed completely. I maybe have poor filtration with internal Aquael Unifilter 750. Peroxide helps but not completely, just for some days...
Wish you success, keep on!

Looks like your problem was that one of the three legs of maintaining a planted aquarium were off. I am guessing you weren't dosing ferts and excel.
carlmelo
carlmelo - 4 years ago
those diatoms or brown algae are part of a new tank cycling, aka new tank syndrome. I would have used Tetra Safe Start Plus to help establish the tank and then introduce some Ottocincluses a day after. In a few days, the Ottos will completely have eaten all of it. Diatoms are par course. If, you had left the tank alone to cycle, the diatoms would disappeared by itself.
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
Thanks. I had cycled filter on this tank. This diatoms bothered me for two months. I had the same problem in another aquarium, seven months ...

I'm just curious if you ever thought of adding cleanup crew like amanos, sae, snails.
Tim Phillips
Tim Phillips - 3 years ago
I've read that Excel contains a substance that modifies organisms on a GENETIC level. And since algae is a single cell organism, it's basically flipping its genetic code and killing it that way.

Excel won't kill brown diatoms in my experience, though.
Adhi AWE
Adhi AWE - 3 years ago
u need to overdose excel to treat the algae. normal dose will inhibit algae grwoth instead of kill them. I go for excel than prime, as the excel contains desinfectant substance to kill algae spores.
Raye Gunn
Raye Gunn - 3 years ago
I had a similar experience, but with Flourish Excel. Algae isn't gone, i still have to clean off some brown algae, and there is a patch of green fuzz on some wood in the back, but it's much better than it was. Used to have a lot of black and green fuzzy edges on leaves and stuff. but may look into Prime next time i need to get water conditioner.

Thanks man. How did you solve the problem?
Aquatic Haus
Aquatic Haus - 4 years ago
Just subbed you, looking forward for your update with this.

and actually all you could do is just to crank up the co2 ( some bubble counters aren't accurate ) and lower the light intensity or cut down the light periods. and then add amano/yamato shrimps and otos and some nerite snails if you'd like.

Doing a blackout doesn't solve it but make it worst like what you tried because you're not providing lights for your plants and so they melt off. All those dying plants are again feeding the algae. Another tip is instead of Hydrogen Peroxide, you can try zero algae by ocean free. Lastly cut back on ferts if you do any dosing. Your tank is in serious in-balance that's why they are coming back over and over again.

Cheers, best of luck with DSM.

i once struggled with this also, tried to put algae eaters (lot of them) still not working..
then i change the substrate into some small stones (Alor Sand) instead of sands, and put the Azoo Carbon, and it works. the algae gone in few days.

in my case, i tought the key is the filtration current is not strong enough..
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
Thanks. I intend to change my filter.
Chris Mintjes
Chris Mintjes - 4 years ago
I would have added some Ottocinclus or shrimps.
Even if I planned to not let it have anything in it, it would have been an easier solution, and probably even faster too. A dozen Ottocinclus would have had it clean in less then a week I would guess
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
Yes I will add life in this tank when I fill the tank with water. For now it is still DSM going on.
Chris Mintjes
Chris Mintjes - 4 years ago
Vladimir Stojanovic so, are you going to add some life to this tank too? Doing just smaller shrimps in it will save the peace of it, but way easier to maintain
Vladimir Stojanovic
Vladimir Stojanovic - 4 years ago
I love Amano shrimp too... I have 5.
Chris Mintjes
Chris Mintjes - 4 years ago
Vladimir Stojanovic oh, the reason I would not pick the Amano shrimps is that they prefer half salt/half fresh water to breed. The smaller and more colorful Neocaridinha can be bred on just fresh water.
Chris Mintjes
Chris Mintjes - 4 years ago
Vladimir Stojanovic I love them, I have six of them in my 1 meter aquarium. They are great algue eaters.
Personally I would go for the Blue Fairy or any green breed of the neocaridinha family for that tank of yours.

I have like 40 Blue Fairies in my shrimp aquarium too, together with about 20 yellow breeds.

This tank of yours would do great with some shrimps if you ask me.

buy a small ro di unit if you can afford it, buy an internal filter with UV it looks like your canister filter doesn't have UV, try adding quick growing plants to the scape which can compete with algae, add some ottos and shrimp. turn up the lighting, your tank looks slightly dark and you where facing brown algae bloom.
