API Algaefix Aquarium Algae Control
I have a koi pond for years. This algaefix helps to keep away the algae and the water clear. It is recommended by the pond builder. Read the directions before using it. I am happy with it all these years.

what happened in my tank
i had a lot of brown slimy algae in my 29 gal baby pleco tank. I tried for some time to get rid of it and noting happened. it just got worse I don't use chemicals in my fish so really had to persuade myself to use this product. it killed the algae all right but there was so much of it that it clogged the canister , the tank went bad as the algae rotted quickly. I had to break down the tank and start over. lost 4 fish. my advice is to use the product early not after you let the tank go too long. dying stuff even algae begins to rot and bad things happen. the product worked exactly as advertised, it was entirely my error that things went wrong. also I do not get rid of green algae as my baby fish use it for first food,

I had algae bllow in my 26 g. Changed all water, scrubbed the items, EVERYTHING! Suspended algae kept coming back. Changed filters, did 20% water changes, nothing worked. All levels were perfect, but water was a green cloud. Put this in, and BAM, within 10 minutes, the water was lightly cloudy with no green. And within 2 hours, it was crystal clear. Excellent product!

Works great in reducing the amount of built up algae in my tank. I like to have a little in there for my dojo loach since he loves to nibble on some. Doesn't eliminate the presence of algae, but definitely helps the amount that builds up.
Word of advice...read the instructions before you use it if you have an invertebrate like crabs and lobsters. I think this is what led to the death of my freshwater lobster since it clearly says on the bottle not to use it if you have lobsters, but I didn't see that part until I had already used it about 3 times.
