Any one know the anwer?

I have 5 Fluval specs set-up sometime 6 weeks ago with same color gravel and Anubias plant.
3 Specs from left had Boyd Chemi-Pure Elite & 2 on right have Seachem Purigen.
Very evident that the ones with Boyd were all mostly covered with brown algae.
Any idea why this vast difference?

Possibly the Purigen is removing some of the silicates from your water. Never heard of it having that capability, but you never know!!

Purigen adsorbs dissolved organics, a food source for bacteria and algae.
