Algae Control by Green Water Labs is the first all-organic, plant-based treatment that is effective in combatting many aquatic algae types and cyanobacteria. After extensive testing at Buce Plant headquarters, we have found that this algae control is the easy solution for fighting problematic algae and for preventing algae in your tank.

Algae Control is a non-toxic, water soluble liquid that can be applied as a foliar spray or added directly to planted aquariums and bodies of water. The active ingredients are extracted from organic waste, and is free of copper, ammonia, and peroxides. They target and inhibit various forms of algae and cyanobacteria in the water column, resulting in a cleaner, healthier planted aquarium. Algae Control's specialized formula is designed to attack filamentous, suspended, and attached algae species by targeting enzymes necessary for its photosynthesis. 

    Several aquascapers have seen great results when adding Algae Control along with any fertilizers they use. Sometimes fertilizers can spark algae blooms, especially if you are adding too much. Algae Control will help mitigate any blooms from fertilizers and other additives you are throwing in your tank.

    You can add Algae Control as soon as you set up your tank. Then, keep dosing regularly, weekly, bi-weekly, or after each water change depending on how serious your algae problem is. Refer to the chart below for more details on average dosing.

    Notes on dosing:

    • If you have especially sensitive fauna, you may start with 15mL per 5 gallons and monitor your tank's inhabitants before increasing to the regular dosage
    • Gently shake the bottle prior to dosing - Floating bits are normal
    • We recommend adding the solution directly into the aquarium filter - Cloudiness is expected initially as the solution mixes in the tank 
    • If you are doing frequent water changes you may need to increase the dosage to heavy levels
    • The solution is slightly acidic - If you are concerned about any changes in pH, you may start with 15mL per 5 gallons and monitor before increasing to the regular dosage

    Black beard algae and Cyanobacteria specifically can be a real nuisance in tanks. Spot treating the algae with a dropper or syringe with Algae Control will greatly improve its effectiveness toward these types of algae.

    Algae Control is 100% safe for ecosystems and will not harm fish, shrimp, snails or aquatic plants when dosage guidelines are followed. Simply make sure to not overdose.
