Ive been making a 4ft vivarium to house some frogs. Ive put the water in, and had it running (with a drip wall through a filter pump)for a couple of weeks but it has developed a thick brown slime/algae in the water and on the rocks.
I was told this is because it is exposed to too much light. I have cleaned it all out and started again, but does anyone know the cure? Have I been told the right info?Also, do plants in the water make a difference? (maybe it filters it etc). I dont have any planted in the water yet. Would appreciate some advice!!!
Oh, Ive limited my plant life uv light to 2 hours a day on advice of my local aquarium. The plants seem to be alright still.
