String algae kill fish?
07-05-2017, 07:29 AM
Over the past two days the string algae in my aquarium has started to get out of control. This morning I woke up to find my regularly healthy and vibrant foxface lying on the sand and pale. Could the string algae cause an illness in fish?

The algae is a symptom of other issues, but the algae to itself not a fish killer.

Get back to us with your parameters checked before lights come on in the morning, and post a pic with lights on for a while

hi, do you mean stringy things like dinoflagellate? if it is, it will kill your inverts as it is toxic.
