yes yes, algone! i tried it this week for the first time, and it cleared my tank up within about 4 days! just remember that no product is a replacement for good tank maintenance. think of it more as a supplement or an emergency only thing. (its also expensive). i like it cause it doesn't seem to act like a flocculant or a chemical, it does the job of plants, and competes for the excess nutrients without disturbing the beneficial bacteria. can't say enough about it- i wish i had some before and after pictures of my tanks!

Well I just done with about a month worth of green water and in the last 2 days it has vanished without a trace. Yu are probably wondering what I did to get rid of it. Nothing but add plants. I tried changing my dosing, didn;t work, I tried less light, didn't. I went back to my regular dosing, I have a fair umber of plants and this didn't work. I recently got some new plants and low and behold, gone in 4 days from when I got the plants.

I am pretty sure that mine was caused from me removing too many plants and throing things out of whack though. But I have never treated for an algae bloom and I have never had one last more than a month.

As for treating it, I can only recommend Algone. Seems to be the best one on the market and I have never heard of it not working. It is supposed to be safe for plants also so that is an added bonus for those that keep plants.

Algone! Wonderful product. All natural. Plant in a pouch! Works, but be patient. Do a water change, add the Algone pouch and watch what happens over 7 days. It will be ALLGONE!

PS: You will have to purchase it at a LFS or on line. Chains like PetSmart, etc do not carry it. I paid $9.99 for 6 and that was well over a month ago, for use on 2 tanks with some minor issues (bacterial bloom and diatom). I still have 2 pouches left so it's not that expensive.
