    Hi all,

    Is there anything on the market that can be used to help get rid of GHA a little quicker?:p

    I have gotten allot of advice from you guys and have implemented nearly all of them relating to my past arcticals and it has improved, it is getting better but just so slow.:whistling:

    Anything I can use to help move / speed things up a bit for this nasty green hair algae I have?:(

    Thanks
    :slayer:

    I know this is in the chemicals and additives side. But sometimes GHA can hang around for a long tome after you have stripped all measurable Nitates and PO4 from the water.

    If your bloom is because its a new tank, then it will probably go away soon on its own. IF not I would strongly recomend getting some herbivores in there. Urchins, snails, sea hares, tangs. All make a big difference.

    he has a lovely heard of yellow tangs in there, but I am afraid i think you are in for a long haul pugsly. the products tony suggest are a good step, but things will take a while to "burn" off i fear. hang in there things will get better :)
