    How do you get rid of algae in an octopus tank?
    Ive tried most everything and it just keeps coming back.

    What sort of algae is it? What color, what form? Not all algae is bad. Is it the green algae, mostly on the glass? Maybe you could post a pic, too.

    Some algae you just have to keep removing by hand.

    Will this algae peel off easily, if you use a stick or other sharp instrument?
    Is it like a furry coat, or is is flat and is in circular form?
