    Somehow there is no algae in my shrimp tank, none at all. The shrimp probably eat it

    BaLuKu,
    From my experience (6 months of CRS keeping), I have been using the Seachem Flourish line (ex: excel, iron, patassium, etc). So far, so good. Note: I use half the recommended dosage.

    Fertilizer wise, I've been using Florish excel (every 2 days), Nutrafin NPK and Nutrafin trace (every week). I use the exact recomended dosage.

    If you can get your hands on fast growing stem plants, you may be able to outcompete the algae naturally. Overdosing on Excel has been shown to be effective for algae (certain types, not all) outbreaks as well. I don't know if it's worth a shot.

    Thanks all for the advise!

    Anyone experience water turning murkish white in their tank? What seems to be the problem? The soil?

    This was pointed out your other thread... most likely a bacterial bloom that will clear in a few days.
