Treatment[edit source]

I am going to add my recent short-term experience which seems to have worked. Huw Powell 19:53, 22 May 2011 (CDT)

It worked very well. Huw Powell 23:18, 25 May 2011 (CDT)
Glad to hear it. I've lost my tank to bubble algae and can't afford to deal with it right now :( --Brian 07:44, 26 May 2011 (CDT)
Sorry to hear that! What is bubble algae? The final results of this stuff I used were quite remarkable, by the way, with the last of the bga just sort of disappearing overnight. I'm also using this co2booster stuff that is an unlabelled algicide, between that and the fourth species of snails to try their hand in the tank even the hard algae that was on plant leaves is just going away. Or it could all be a fluke of the tank finally "maturing"... damn, science is hard! Huw Powell 20:04, 28 May 2011 (CDT)
Oops I missed this comment. Bubble Algae is a SW algae that only emerald crabs really eat. Unfortunately when I moved last one of the bubbles popped and is spread everywhere in a bout a week. There is just too much for the crab to keep up with. --Brian 07:08, 3 June 2011 (CDT)

Aye, over dosing with Seachem's Excel product is well known for killing off Algae. As is other manufacturers similar 'liquid CO2' products. --Quatermass 17:12, 2 June 2011 (CDT)

Yes, API's CO2Booster, featuring glutaral(dehyde) is an off-label algaecide (neither firefox nor I know how to spell this!). Though I do have one species of thready brown algae hanging in there. Huw Powell 20:41, 5 June 2011 (CDT)
