My discus tank has developed lots of green algae spots all over the front and side glass. Now the thing is there is 3 resident bristlenose in the tank and they havnt really been eating it. They aren't adults still 4-5cm juvies. Iv seen them on the glass but the algae is still there...

the green spot algae is a bit too tough for them and they cant rasp it off.
Get in there with a razor and clean it off
