Hi People,

First of all, i am fighting this disgusting algae since over 2 years now and i tried nearly everything despite special fishes.

nothing helped, sometimes it was gone for a duration of 2 months or more but then it reappeared.

1month ago in another forum a guy posted that he found a good solution.
he just combined "Microbe-Lift Special Blend" and "Easy Life Algae exit" and the algae was gone.

First of all i could not believe that cuase of the history of all my tries.
But i gave it a shoot and bought both products.

IT HELPED !!!!

The usage is pretty easy.
You do a Waterchange then insert the starter amount of Special Blend and Algae exit.
My algae just stopped growing and after 2 Days it was mostly gone.
I still got small batches on the sides but i just remoed them manually.

I cant tell you that these algae never reapeared but every time i saw a small sign of it i just used the both products again and it was gone again.

this is the best solution for me, cause i didnt want to buy special fish just for 1 algae.

i hope i could help you with this information.

all credit to the owner of aquasabi !

greetings,
Max

Poster with a single post and then claims of miracles and claims to have used special fish?

Sounds like an ad to me.

I've used baby Bushy Nose plecos.

Removed the fish, the GDA came back(did this 2x now). Never had any failures with Baby bushy nose plecos unless someone tried like 1 in a 55 gallon or something(you'd need say 8 for a 55 gallon).

Better them than you.

WTB: some real snake oil. PM price.

v3
Pm sent but the "real snake oil" isn't cheap just so you know.

All this can be yours for a $100 down payment, 36 monthly installments of $99.95 and the rights to your soul. :icon_evil

No guarantees and no returns!

This is the best product on the market and if it doesn't work then you're not doing it right.

I know Tobi and Juri both.

Many people have made lots of claims about GDA and each solution has failed, the tank pictured is really poorly care for. This is the root problem, not the algae and the chemical cure. 3-4 Bushy nose plecos would take good care of the algae in less than a week.

Cost less and be a far more preferred method(Biocontrol versus chemicals) for most aquarist.

Several small bushy nose plecos are a 100% effective against GDA. I've tried some really bad cases and induced algae to the point of Tobi's tanks above last year. I've come up with 3 different methods to address GDA, but the plecos are the best and have the highest likelihood of success, snake oil in a bottle, the least successful. One of the few rare exceptions is Algaefix for green hair algae.

Cost for a few small bushy nose plecos is pretty cheap. They mix well with most all planted tanks.

Better them, than you, and they last longer than chemicals, clean other types of algae off the glass.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the confirmation.

I understand your oppinion about fish > chemicals.

But for example, i got just a 63l tank and dont know any Ancistrus/plecos that stay small enough to maintain them for a long time so i need to search for other options, but if you know a species that fits for me your advice is very welcome :D

greetings,
max
