This my 90gal. as of November 2015 It has been set up for over 4 years now and is doing great, the fish really love it now that the top is no longer a plant free zone. It is low tech, I just add Seachem Flourish Comp. and Seachem Flourish Excel once a week. Confused

Very pretty indeed. Cool What plants and fishes do you have stocked?

Cake or death?

Beautiful tank and not a sign of algae, I need to do something with mine, also low tech but no matter how low I keep the nitrates , I just can't keep the algae under control, need to increase my ferts I think. Might try your Seachem regime :-)

Algae is controlled by the balance of light intensity and nutrients; both must be sufficient for the plant species.  I have had algae increase due to light (too strong, or too long), as well as due to increasing the nutrient fertilization.  There is no hard and fast rule, it is specific to the given aquarium.  I would be glad to explain if you want, and can provide me with the data.
