Yes it is very similar. I had about 3 different kinds of algae to start with. Brown and BBA being the worst. It has all but disappeared now
I installed a circulation pump running at 800lph,my eheim also runs at 950lph.I also overdosed the liquid carbon. The stated dose was 3ml daily and I gradually upped it to 5ml daily.
I had started to gradually reduce the dosage as the algae lessened but I noticed a couple of days ago that the younger leaves on the java fern had been affected.
The odd young crypt leaf died back and one Amazon sword leaf.
I am now dosing with the right dose of 3ml. I am thinking of using co2 but it is very expensive to set up. I would use a DIY co2 setup but not sure how effective or indeed safe it would be.
