From personal experience. I started a 55 with high light, CO2, nutrients, etc. Anyways, I had a bad case of Clado algae. I used Metricide at about 0.6 ml per gallon and it killed all of the Clado. The fish were fine...even the Ghost Shrimp I had at the time seemed OK. Now, I have no algae issues because the tank is mature i suppose. Basically I overdose nutrients, provide plenty of CO2, which leaves my limiting factor the lighting.
I did eventually lose my Ghost Shrimp...My Blue Gouramis loved them!
