I have some green algae forming in mats on top of my sand. I don't have anything sand sifting right now... I can clean my tank and syphon the sand and the stuff will come back in a day or two. I run Rowa phosphate removal in a reactor.
My question is... How bad would it be if I just went in daily and mixed up the sand to try and bury the algae so it can die off without light. The stuff does float up when it can be blown off of the sand but it comes up in small pieces that I have trouble getting out. I haven't had much luck removing large chunks of it. It is getting worse daily and where it was concentrated in one spot it has now spread. It will cover up the stuff I have in the sand bed and not let things open up.
