Handout from Algae Prevention Talk

Hi everyone, about a month ago I gave a presentation at a local aquarium society (SVAS) on "How to Prevent Algae." I put together a handout with a lot of the information from my talk and I thought you might find it useful.

HTH,
Christine

is the remedy for stupidity.

It's not the size of the tank, but how you use it.

You forgot one pretty major point. Those dosing regimes assume a heavily planted tank.

Anyone who tries those nutrient levels in a lightly planted tank is going to run into problems fast.
