|GDP||Yeah they were all SSS. But once I seen those damn things scurrying around I refused to ever put my hand back in there. I would have nuked it from orbit just to be sure.|

|MABJ||0.0 I'd have found a way to make it work. High grade CRS are neat lol|

|GDP||I hate scuds. Got them in my 20g ... I let all the CRS and everything in that tank die. Then I threw out the whole tank. Such a shame too because they were really high grade CRS and had a lot of nice plants in that tank.|

|hedge_fund||Thanks Tom. I was actually wondering how long I should be dosing this stuff. Glad you were able to clarify all my question marks.|

If the pesticide is bound to organic matter, it cannot target the shrimp, algae etc.
You can do a large water change after, this is par for the treatments for algae, any large change etc. Unlike say Copper, it cannot re release back into the tank later on, since the active ingredient is now broken down. Cooper would require a nuke reactor to "decompose" into something non toxic, this needs bound or removed. Algaefix does not. Chemical pesticides that persist in the water are bad, like atrazine. You want things that bind or break down into non toxic by products relatively fast.

Plants are not effected nor fish.
I got about 20% kill, then around 50-70% with RCS. Amano's are tougher, but crawl out.
I never did get 100% kill.
Which is sort of what you need.
Might try a few more days of dosing. But that's a Grey area as far as plants and fish, they seem fine with 3 continuous days.
Snails? They are immortal. Unless you start killing fish and plants.

|Kitsune_Gem||When I had an infestation of the blasted scruds, I threw my betta in there for 3 months, lost a few baby shrimp, but the adults are okay and my betta devastated my scruds. Haven't seen one since the betta was removed : )|

|zzrguy||You are going to need active carbon to get rid of the algae fix when you are happy happy happy that al the vermin are gone. You might need to run two or more loads of carbon.|

Hey man, keep an eye on your filter too much algafix will kill your bio filter as well
