So TODAY I wanna bring you LIVE inside of the no maintenance tank inside my wife’s pediatric clinic. As you can see the plan here has FAILED, Oh well. It’s not the first tank I have had to redo and it certainly won’t be the last. So let’s unpack how we got here. Well the first thing in LIGHTING. Yes—We have way too much light going on in here. But it isn’t one factor alone and I actually am working on another Algae video for you all but for today we are just going to focus on the tank here. Too much light AND TOO MANY FISH, Simple enough. Now luckly, this tank has the stringy kind of algae that is pretty easy to move. It is also equipment with the almightly FX4 from out friends at fluval. The fish load it pretty high. The other thing that I simply don’t have control of is how much food goes into this bad boy. So we have essentially two unknown variables. Could be WAY too much food. Could be way too much light. Here is another thing that is missing. NOT ENOUGH PLANTS. NO Sir. No Maam. Not enough plants to take up the excess nutrient.

Phosphate and nitrate. Add chemical filtration for phos and nitrate like filter pads aquaone makes or invest in a reactor. Some filter media also reduces nitrate aka marine pure. Add some co2 if you want better plant growth.

I have my lights on for 12 hours, hardly any algae, well only the stuff I want and a little on the glass. I over feed sometimes too. I put it down to the food I use, natural with very little phosphates. Plant galore. I agree you need more plants.

D Man!
Gonna lay a mini rant on ya - what's up with this "HYDROGEN PEROXIDE" fairy-tale ???.
Not pointing any fingers (not at you, anyway) as I recognize a fellow snail lover... :-)
but I saw like 4 or 5 vid's stating that I should use a spray of HP to attack the kind of "Hair" algy you have there in that tank.
I started off with a hand full of my premo Ivory Apple snails in a tank with a run-away algy thing goin', but they just couldn't keep up. (My first dirted, BTW)
SO, on the recommendation of said vid's, I did a partial to drop the water level, and did a minor spray - like 4.5 ml in a 18gal. bowfront with a tiny pump type sprayer.
First off, my apples started totally chowin' down on the algy - for like 2 hours... before they all sucked back into their shells, fell off what they were hanging onto, sank to the bottom, and died. Killed off the algy sure enough - but crap!!!
The videos assured this particular snail wrangler that, " ...look, see that? That fish just swam right through that blast of HP!!! That proves it really does just break down into hydrogen and water..." I wonder how long his fish survived?
OK, now - here's the twisted part - not one of the damned pond snails in that tank even slowed down. Why in hell would it kill of over a dozen apples and not touch the pond snails? Other way around I probably would have been pleased! Of course the pond snails weren't EATING the algy... ya-I just answered my own question right?

Just throw a bunch of wisteria in there and trim it every 4-6 weeks. Problem solved. It's not "no mx" but it'd look good. I think wisteria looks amazing.

Hay DustinI was trying to see if your channel was big enough that it would be seen on this game that guesses Youtuber's biased on clues you give it. It wasn't on there so I tried to add your name and a description of your YouTube channel. Sadly It had to be in between 2 and 50 characters. So I thought I would do the next best thing by posting the description here just to get your opinion on it.(Dustin's Fish Tanks)DIY YouTuber who gained a lot of traction when he posted a video titled (How To Setup a Ghetto Aquarium, the "I'm Broke Aquarium" Quick & Easy). He's known for being extremely cring in his videos, one way he does this is by yelling in the begging of them "WHATS UP FISH TANK PEOPLE!" he has two daughters who I feel very bad for because Dustin is cringy dad x10 and a good one a that. He's also known for getting many people addicted to the heroin that is fish tanks. He's done some colabs with King of DIY and also owns his own business selling plants for fresh water aquariums. We also think he secretly sells moon shine because he lives in the backwoods of eastern Kentucky. If you ever see him make sure to yell his mating call "what's up fish tank people" to get his attention. Other than that he's pretty chill, he doesn't really do much but make really energetic, interesting, and funny content. I wish I had his green house. congrats on almost getting 100,000 subs dude get that silver play button

IMO the algae makes it look natural. And you could split the feeding portions into baggies so the person feeding knows how much to give.

For purposes of flowing over the top of the tank, shouldn't the crenum be on the other side?  On the left side, it has to buck the current which comes from the right.

Throw some co2 in the mix. Will probably keep the algae down, and boost the growth of that buce.
Richard O'connor
Richard O'connor - 3 years ago
In other words the duck weed blocking the direct light powered up the algee bloom powered by the in direct light that is always there.

get some of my personal favorite limnophilia sessiliphlora (ambulia) and it will grow so fast even in that environment it will out compete the algae.

I'm pretty sure this tank has 4 t5 lights, right? That's a lot of light. Why don't you just lower the light intensity or get a different light since you can't do anything about the outside lights? That way you can run the lights for longer than 5-6 hours.
Richard O'connor
Richard O'connor - 3 years ago
Blink the light from the top is powering the algee to grow from the in direct light.
Your blocking with the duck weed the direct light only slowing down the good plant growth. Algee using all light coming from the sides to bloom.
Richard O'connor
Richard O'connor - 3 years ago
Put dark glass tint on the short end sides should block the in direct light that is powering the algee bloom.
Richard O'connor
Richard O'connor - 3 years ago
The light from up top is not growing the algee , it is the in direct light like you think.
The good plants are not growing because they are not getting enough direct light for them to grow fast.
