No More Brown and Green Algae in Tank

19 years ago

I have a 2 3/4 months old tank and was having brown algae after I had siphoned it in 1 week. Even after treating water to get nitrates in safe zone the water was still very hard. Well I ended up buying purified water at the market. I even tested the purified water. The test results were in the best zone and no hard water. Well I filled 3/4s of the tank with purified water. What a major change. No algae problems after a month. I just recently purchased a new AquaPharm tap water purifier over Ebay to always have plenty purified water on hand. To get the most of my purified water, I even use the aquarium weekly water change for my terrarium plants and Orchids. Good, safe, clean water does make a difference.
