@Algae In Space

You're going through the same temperature issues as I am. 26c is just too hot. 26c is perfect and when lower even better. Just my opinion.

Yeah better not too hot!

By the way: How much nerites should I get if I decided to get some for my 20l to clean the hair algae? I already got the trumpet snails so... how much is advised? :what:

Just make sure you do have your tank lid on with the Nerite snails as they WILL climb out of the tank and fall on your floor and die. I’ve lost a few when I forgot to pull my lid back after doing some maintenance. :(

I'm really not the biggest fan of MTS. They will not eat the hair algae. If they're adults and if there's plenty of food to eat they will multiply like crazy. That's the part I don't like. I been there & there's too many babies in the tank now. Not all my tanks but 3 are this way & regret it. I will only keep nerites.

Yeah... I love my black TS but on the orher hand I hope they wont go creazy in terms of numbers. If everything else fails I'll maybe put a net or something on top of the tank to seal so I can let it be cooler in summer and have nerites too.
