Does anyone know anything about the Aqua One algae block? Is it safe for turtles?
Hi Gembob - what's the problem you're trying to fix with the algae blocks? 99.9% of the time algae is better treated by reducing the problem at the source (which is usually excessive light and/or excessive food issues) than trying to get rid of the algae by other methods.
The blocks are fine, but they're not going to resolve the problem. Algae needs to be controlled at the source.
OK good to know, thank you! How would I be able to source the problem do you think? I have a feeling it is direct access to filtered light through a window... I moved house and the tank positioning is now very different.
What specific algae problem are you dealing with?? See the following link, it has numerous algae types with photos. It'll explain the causes and treatments.
A very informative article above. Really worthwhile reading. Most useful article pertaining to algae I have read.
Definitely brown algae. Thanks!!!
