Curious if anyone has had success using API Algaefix on planted tanks with hair algae and/or green spot algae?
Did it affect live plants?
Does it harm snails or be beneficial beneficial bacteria?

Been trying the 3x dose Seachem Excel but it's not put a dent in it yet much less start killing it :c. Going to be adjusting lights to prevent future hair slags just having a dickens of a time getting rid of what's here now.

Have you tried H2O2?
No but I'm concerned about that killing off benifical bacteria (?), the hair algae problems are in tanks with sponge filters, they're cureved picos so I can't fit a HOB onto them.
