Default Re: I have greenish water

I have heard the Flourish Excell application works, but I am leery about it because giving the algae plant food to kill it scares me. I use Florish and the F/excell weekly for my normal plant feedings without any problems now that I have a fair amount of plant growth. I get some algae on the glass, but my pleco mows it.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I did my 4th H2O change since I put the driftwood in my tank and changed the filter cartridge for the 1st time since I put the driftwood in. I didn't do a complete blackout, however I reduced the length of time the light was on and I have no more green water. Thanks!

by the way do all logs cloud up the water after you put them in.
