Algae Remedies

Aquarium algae control and aquarium algae removal are very complex problems that need to be battled on many fronts. For a comprehensive solution to your algae problem we recommend reading "Algae: A Problem Solvers Guide." Not listed in this section, but critical components are UV Sterilizers, Phosphate Reactors, Refugiums and RO Systems. UV Sterilizers prevent free floating algae from reproducing. RO Systems use reverse osmosis to produce purified water without phosphates and other substances that encourage algae growth. Refugiums cultivate algae outside of the main tank, resulting in the consumption of algae nutrients. Phosphate Reactors remove phosphate. We a number of products that work by eliminating the food souces for algae. This includes Algae Magic. ChemiClean is specifically for red cyno bacteria, and as the name implies, Chem-Marin Sop Hair Algae treats hair algae. We also carry algae scrub pads.
