Old growth on stressed plants attract algae. New growth on healthy plants are algae resistant. In tanks going through a period of transition stress, it is important to make space for new growth by clearing out the old.

    Effective for spot treatment

    I have some Bucephalandra that I moved from one tank to another (low energy to high energy). It was struggling during the transition, and some leaves developed green algae spots. Spot treatment with APT Fix for 2-3 days took care of most of that!

    Actually works

    I tried hydrogen peroxide, bleaching decorations, and reducing lighting to get rid of the dreaded black beard algae (bba). Nothing worked, until I used APT fix! This product really does work. I spot dosed with the filter off. I allowed it to sit approximately 30 minutes, then I performed a water changed. For the next week, I spot dosed areas of the tank, every other day. The bba turned a red or white when it was dead, this allowed my to see areas that had not been spot dosed. I also diligently removed any dead or severely algae infested leaves. It even worked on the green algae that was growing in my sand pond in the tank. I always keep a bottle handy, in case I see new areas of bba showing up.

    The only effective Algae Treament i found so far

    I started my aquascaping since 2005, with years of experience, i never worry about algae, until around 5 years ago i met one type of filamentous algae - Spirilla like. It almost ruined my hobby. I put this algae to many small clear transparent glass, each treated with difference brand of algae treatments in very high dosage to see which brand is effective . Only 2Hr Aquarist APT Fix is working. With all other brands (include the famous Seachem Excel) , this algae is still growing under sunlight. Dumb up for APT For this super algae, i find 1x-2x only effectively control its growth, it took 5x overdose to eliminate this particular type of algae, and require few more treatment every few days (though you can reduce the dosage). Take note that for this high dosage it will **** your fish, for any overdose treatment, remember to put Air stone for your fish, for 3x overdose treatment and above, please move out your fish first.

    Absolutely love it.

    My tank has been suffering from green hair algae for three weeks and I was at my wit's end. It was until I used this APT Fix to deal with the problem. You may see some unhealthy plants dying as well but it is compensated for the fact that most of the algae dies as well. My tank is not completely free of algae now but it has helped me with balancing the tank tremendously. The best part is that I still have so much left of APT Fix that I can use anytime I need to deal with a sudden algae outbreak. All I can say is, 2Hr Aquarist products always meet my expectations and I do not expect nothing less from them. 5 out of 5.

    Best Fix

    This product is the ONLY product that has successfully and safely cut back my algae as a quick fix. I will say pay close attention because it's not wrong when it says melting Vals and Sags. I'm very impressed. And no fish even slightly bothered.
