[APD] Algae Fix
Yes yes, I know I shouldn't use chems to fight algae but
I got fed up and tried Algae Fix. May as well post my results
1) It didn't hurt the plants - I had over 25 species in there including
Tonina fluvatilis, stargrass, Bacopa myriophyllum (sp?), Blyxa japonica.
The only plant that didn't like the treatment was the stargrass - got
a little blackening of the leaf edges, but it didn't die.
2) Fish didn't seem to notice it...
3) It killed the algae. I had three forms of algae in there -
- green dust
- black film (a form of red algae)
The green dust and black film were gone within a week. The BBA
definitly didn't like the treatment but is now going away slowly.
Its turned gray - white in some areas and I can simply wipe it off
in most areas. I suspect that with another dose I may kill it all
but I probably won't dose again - I have the upper hand now.
It will kill snails and inverts.
Use the product at your own risk.
