What are aquarium algae treatments?
Algae thrive on nitrate, ammonia and high CO2 levels, especially if your tank receives a lot of direct sunlight. They colour the water a nasty green, turn it murky, can smother plants and decor with unsightly slime, and can starve your fish of oxygen. Algae treatments help reduce cloudy water caused by phosphates within your aquarium by consuming the nutrients.
Why might I buy aquarium algae treatments?
Whether you're new to the hobby or a seasoned aquarist, the prospect of an algae problem can be daunting. However, it is very common as algae thrive on water, nutrients and bright or extended light. All of which can be found in your aquarium. Used promptly, the right treatments can both keep algae at bay.
What are the main types of aquarium algae treatments?
Algae treatments help reduce green, brown and slimy algae to ensure you can keep your aquarium healthy. We carry treatments designed to help you prevent the main causes of algae in your fish tank, keeping your water clearer and aiding you in avoiding algae deposits on your aquarium glass.
What accessories should I buy with aquarium algae treatments?
Algae treatments can be particularly effective when used alongside other treatments and additives to maintain the quality of the water. It is a good idea to regularly test the water using appropriate test kits so that you can keep an eye on your water quality, especially the nitrate and phosphate levels, as these are the primary cause of excess algal growth.
