Yes an algae turf scrubber(not scraber) can help, but it will take time. When I implemented a scrubber it took about 4 to 6 months for it to finally out compete the GHA in my DT.



Scrubbers are base on how much you feed regardless of tank size. Figure out how much you feed a day, then size the scrubber to that amount.




Not sure who's killing who though, or who you want to kill?



Punctuation goes a long way when typing. One giant run on sentence is really tough to read, or comprehend when combined with typo's.

How bad is it exactly? If you're phosphate is that low and you have chaeto I imagine just manually removing it will do the trick.

The chaeto is the "king of the garden" but you still need to remove weeds from time to time. Eventually that maintenance will be become less and less because you're allowing the chaeto to hog the nutrients and the other algae won't have much of a chance.

Scrubbers are not based on tank size. They are based on how much you feed. Figure out how much you feed a day, then size appropriately.

This!


Although I tend to just respond to the question and not dive to much into what or why.



IMO and IME chaeto will not out compete GHA. In my tank the GHA grew right over the top of the chaeto strangling it out.

Have you tried Vibrant yet? I heard Vibrant can kill GHA.

Agree, people forget this site reaches other countries, respect should be given for those asking for help w/ tank for the tanks sake
