    stubborn cyano algae

    Hi,

    I have been fighting some cyano (red slime) algae for a while now (2 months) I had no problem until I introduced some of those live tigerpods. I followed the directions and dumped them in water and all. That was the beginning of my problem. Have tried large water changes and carbon but the algae isn't slimy enough to siphon it out. It just breaks up . What can I do?? Help please!

    Let it thicken enough to suck out, another words let it grow some, this will help two fold as your exporting the stuff that is the problems also.
