I have had problems with black beard algae growing on a bunch of the artificial plants in a few of my tanks. From everything I have found on the net, NOTHING eats it and the only way people get rid of it is by bleaching the items covered in it.

I found my own solution: throw it in my troph tank! They go nuts for it! Has anyone else seen this? :unsure:

Yes - At the time I switched out my 215G Discus / Plant set up for a Tang tank, I had been having big problems with the nasty beard algae. I had tried all the scientific solutions to eliminate it to no avail....Two days after I moved the Trophs in there was not a spec of the stuff to be seen!

if the trophs don't eat it dose the tank with Seachem Flourish Excell as directed, one of it's side effects is BBA does die.

Thanks for the tip! I will keep that in mind for my non-troph tanks!
