How to Get Rid of Algae and Cyanobacteria

The traditional methods of using antibiotics and algaecides have one “benefit” – they work fast. You can usually see results in a day. But this “victory” is short lived and the cyanobacteria or algae come back even stronger than before because, as mentioned earlier, the decaying dead cells become food that spurs the re-growth of the algae and cyanobacteria. The 100% natural alternative method presented here takes a little longer but does not involve any harmful chemicals or antibiotics, just beneficial bacteria that GET TO THE SOURCE of the problem.

Here’s how to proceed:

1) Manually remove as much of the algae/cyano as possible by siphoning, netting and micro filtration.

2) Use DrTim’s Re-Fresh for a total of 10 to 14 days, adding Re-Fresh every 3 to 4 days (dosage is 5 ml per 10 gallons aquarium water). Reef tank owners – beware that high doses of Re-Fresh may harm snails and shrimp so these organisms should be removed from the aquarium.

3) After the Re-Fresh regime, dose the aquarium with Waste-Away. Start with a half-dose (5ml per 10 gallons). Add another half dose 2 days later. If there are a lot of organics in the system you may experience cloudy water. This is a sign that the beneficial bacteria are working but also a sign to proceed cautiously because too much of a bacterial bloom can lower the oxygen to dangerous levels. If there is no cloudiness, add a full dose on day 4. Continue to add Waste-Away every 2 to 3 days (watching for any cloudiness) for 2 weeks. Generally at the end of this 4 week period of adding Re-Fresh and Waste-Away, the tank will be clean and there will be a noticeable improvement in water clarity and cleanliness of the substrate.

The above works – here are some testimonials from professionals for cyanobacteria and aquarium slime.

4) Once the aquarium is looking better, Waste-Away should be added on a routine basis – at least every month. However, it is important for you to evaluate the reasons for the organic build-up in the aquarium in the first place. Is it the result of overfeeding, overpopulation, lack of routine cleaning? To save yourself continued headaches, a critical self-evaluation of the causes is warranted and action needed.
