    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fish must be tough I read reviews for first time yeterday after looking for dosage online. I have to admitt I have been using product for a year before checking dosage. I have been over doseing big time. Just to control algae on glass. I have had my goldfish for 7 years now they are beautiful. I guess from reading other reviews my goldfish must be tough as nails. Because tetra has no effect on them at all. It does a great job keeping my tank looking great. But also my tap water has clorine in it and that doesn't bother them either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Had a bad brown algae problem in my 20 gallon tank. Bought this product and was very careful with the dosage because the instructions clearly said "Do not overdose." My 8 year old and 2 year old goldfish were completely unaffected by the product, but now have a crystal clear tank. The people who killed their fish probably overdosed the tank. Excellent product!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ATTN!! This product clears water immediately. My tank developed serious water cloudiness after a routine gravel vacuuming that I had done a million times before without triggering an algae bloom. As the bloom worsened, I tried less light, more/less water changes, new filters and a handful of products claiming to address blooms. For me, nothing made even a slight difference. One day I tried a small bottle of Tetra AlgaeControl hiding on the store shelf. A long story short, within minutes my tank literally went from a green cloud where I couldn’t see through to the back of the tank, to a perfectly clear environment. Magic in a bottle. I’m posting a review because the internet is filled with suggestions that didn’t work for me and I tried them all. I’m hoping to help others with a viable answer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best aquarium product in existence I’ve been battling green cloudy water that would not go away for weeks no matter how many water changes. I used this yesterday and now my water is crystal clear. Also, for easier dosing, 1mL = 20 drops

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful product I have used this product for a long time with no adverse effect in my aquarium. However, I have not been removing the activated charcoal and now just wondered about that. My question was answered and now I will remove it for a few hours to improve the results of the product.

    Is this product safe for Snails and plants

    Asked by: Mischelle
    Thanks for asking! This product is safe for plants but the snails should be removed from the tank for treatment. Wait 3-4 days after treatment is completed to return the snails to the tank. For more help call Tetra at 1-800-526-0650 or email PetSupport@spectrumbrands.com.

    We have an outside large vase that is a water feature. Can this product be used to clear the algae causing the vase to turn black.

    Depending on the material used to make the vase, yes. This product will remove most types of aquatic algae.

    No, algaecides in general are not safe for invertebrates, unfortunately.

    Can I use this in a small outside koi pond?

    Asked by: Lebed
    Depends on how well maintained it is - this product is safe for koi unless the pond is overstocked or under filtered, etc. Koi require 500 gallons of water per each koi, so koi ponds typically are quite large, never small. Your pond may not have sufficient balance and oxygen for the use of a chemical. Try removing and replacing half of the water first, and either using something like Barley and Peat Extract, and all natural aid, or adding a UV light to the pond.

    My tank is about a month old and I'm having algae problems, is this product ok to use? I was recommended to use it.

    Asked by: kyfarmgirl
    No, not in such a new tank. The tank must be established with fish for at least three months, if not older. Algae problems are typically due to excess waste, over feeding, high levels of phosphates in the tap water. Try doing your normal partial water change, which the tank is due for, and vacuuming the gravel. Algae stops growing back as quickly if you do a good job of regular maintenance.
