Does Oxygen kill algae?
Are high oxygen levels lethal or unhealthy for algae? Or can it at least slow or limit algae growth?
i would agree
i would agree, from my experience wich is very limited, and it may not be much help or any help at all, but i had a big bubbler for my ten gallon tank, and i realy didnt see any issues , but then again i had this tank before i knew anything about biology or cycling or media filters, which im still limited on knowledge with, but i wouldnt see why it would be bad?
Depends on the algea green algea actually creates oxygen then then there's brown slime algeas which are some times actually bacteria and those consume oxygen a nice solution is to provide avid light to discourage brown algeas and limiting nutrients in the water to stint it to a minimum. Personally i like green algae i just keep if off the front and sides with a scraper but incourage it on the back the fish enjoy eating it too. So to answer your question oxygen really has no affect on any type of algae.
