Aquarium owners are always dealing with something. Whether it be excessive nutrients, too many fish or in most cases unwanted algae.
Recently our planted tank started developing hair algae and we couldn’t understand why. Our water changes are done using RO/DI water and the tank is not dosed with chemicals or supplements.
This lead us to figure out what may have been the issue and it is lighting. Our LEDs are amazing, but when the photoperiod is longer than 6-8 hours, coupled with the summer heat, algae can take off.
Our solution is to lessen the lighting period along with manual removal to see if this solution works.
