Re: Is "Algone" a scam?
I would rather concentrate on cutting the algeas food source ( nitrates +
phosphates) and energy source (light!) than use a chemical algea destroyer.
It may work, but it will have to be used constantly untill the actual cause
All tanks will have some amount of algea, and I too welcome it to some
extent ( for certain catfish) but like to keep it in check on my planted
Adding quick growing floating plants can often help, as they can grow at a
higher speed than fully submerged plants and outcompete the algea for food.

keeping tropical fish for more than 40 years and I have yet to figure out
why algae is perceived as being such a problem. I understand that in SOME
cases relating to egg incubation it may not be desired. However, in most
situations, especially when I raised livebearers, I wanted algae in my tanks
and encouraged its growth. Oh well, I hope this is as controversial as the
world gets this year. Bruce
