Does Purigen help with green water issues?
When breeding my Bolivian ram cichlids dug up a shallow API root tab wen they decided to make a nest at the base of my amazon sword using the root system to hide the wigglers. The excess nutrients seems to have caused a green water algae bloom. Ive done water changes and a 3 day black out (except when feeding) and still no major difference. I just bought some purigen and was curious if adding this to my filter will help take some of this algae out of the water... If not what are some other methods that wouldn't result in me having to spend an arm and a leg on UV sterilizers or powerheads with micron filters?
Thanks in advance!
