Shocked! I used Algone and my problems are 'ALLgone'

I had a bacterial bloom issue in one tank and diatom in the other. I posted here asking if anyone had ever used Algone. I only got responses from 2 members if I remember correctly, but they were positive. I just wanted to let everyone here know my experience. I sent an email to the company, the person who replies is named Thilo, and he seemed fairly knowledgeable. I didn't want to wait and do mail order, so I went to my LFS and bought a pack of 6 for $9.99.

WOW! I cleaned both tanks, put the algone pouch in the filter and in 7 days time I have no more cloudy water, no more diatom, nada-nothing! The bags are basically plants in a pouch, and pick up all sorts of crap in the water that eventually makes a smelly slime, full of bad bacteria, on the pouch which means it's time for change.

If anyone has any "issues" give Algone a try. I am sold on it. I am the last person to fall for a product that makes any promises, but this time I was surprised!


Pardon the pun, but I'm hooked!
