first of all let me take the time to take the owners of the list and the
parties that made this possible, Its so hard to find any valuable
information about the subject. I am glad and thankful that people are taking
the time to fill this gaps for beginners like my self.

Here is my problem, I have a newly planted aquarium (110 gal) a have 2 power
compact lights of 55 watts each and two 175 watts Metal H 5500k. I use
fluorite and a ehiem 2028 canister filter and a power head, my temperature
is about 79 F to 80 F. I use one of those home made co2 systems using sugar
and yeast in to the intake of the filter. I have a 6" pleco 6 Chinese algae
eaters some small redhorn snails some ghost shrimp and a couple schools of
tetras and an upside down catfish. I add cycle to the tank as well as some
leaf grow and trace elements. I have had the tank planted for about 1 month.
my water was crystal clear until about 3 days ago when it turned a little
gray and I noticed some of that long stringy algae growing from some of my
plants. I cut some of the light, I stop feeding the fish and stop adding any
chemicals to the water. Is there any algae killer that I can use that will
not harm my plants and fish? what should I do to combat this problem. my PH
is constant at about 6.8 I also had some brown like algae on the glass of my
aquarium. I thank you in advanced for your help.
