>>this plant is supposed to excrete algae inhibitors, i wonder how good at it
this plant is.
does anyone has experimented it ? is it really worth to keep it  ?<<

I never heard of hornwort giving off inhibitors, but the shear fact of
how quickly it grows and soakes up excess nutrients can help to keep
algae at bay. At least from my own experience I have found fast growing
plants like this to be the most effective in outcompeting algae.
