green slime algae?


New member
i have what i believe is green slime algae covering my sandbed. my tank is just over 2 mo old... i use only ro/di. everything is testing where it should (except alk: 12-13 dkh) and phosphates are 0. how do i get rid of it?

Maybe siphon it out and add some sand stirrers/sifters. Two months is still a fairly new tank. Give it time to go through the whole cycling/curing process.

it may go away on its own, depending on you tank .. you can get some chemi-clean to help get rid of the algea...
