Twinstar Aquacradle

The Twinstar Aquacradle is a great piece of equipment if you're looking for a visually attractive alternative to mount your Twinstar Nano Algae Inhibitor to your planted tank's wall. The Aquacradle comes in two different sizes and fits all models of algae inhibitors. The Aquacradle is easy to install and sits on the rim of the tank hiding cords and resulting in a clearer view.

The Twinstar Nano algae inhibitor is specifically designed to prevent the growth of algae in an aquarium.  Don't be fooled by the fake knock-offs currently being put on the market, this is the real deal!  Twinstar has devoted much time and effort into this proprietary technology and the results are evident.  The algae inhibitor works by sterilizing the water column and destroying algae spores before it grows to cover your aquascape.  

The best way to combat algae growth is to achieve a carefully balanced aquarium with proper lighting and nutrient levels.  However, for those who don't have the time, knowledge or expertise in achieving this, the Twinstar Algae Inhibitor is a godsend.  It is proven to improve plant growth while being safe for both fish and shrimp

Because algae and plants share similar growth requirements, they are essentially in competition with each other.  When you reduce the amount of algae present in an aquarium, you allow the plant to receive more light and absorb more nutrients.  The Twinstar Algae Inhibitor thereby promotes plant growth by reducing algae.
