AlgaeFix is effective against green water most often caused by algae blooms Chlorella) AlgaeFix also controls filamentous algae commonly known as “string” or “hair algae” (e.g.,Cladophora) and “blanket weed” (e.g., Oedogonium). Algae growth in ponds can appear as green water blooms, filamentous algae on plants, and floating algal mats. Algae may also grow on rocks, fountains, and waterfalls.
AlgaeFix controls algae in two ways. AlgaeFix causes the algae cell wall to leak. The algae respond much like a deflating balloon. Other algae, such as form filaments that are made up of many cells; AlgaeFix binds to protein in the cell membrane, disrupting the flow of nutrients to the algae.
Before using AlgaeFix, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration, such as a fountain, waterfall, or aeration device. Anytime dead algae are removed the oxygen level may drop to harmful levels if adequate aeration is not provided. If adequate aeration is not provided, fish loss due to low oxygen levels may also occur. Therefore, when using AlgaeFix in warm summer months, adequate aeration must be provided. Do not shut pond pumps and aeration devices off at night. Be sure to keep the pond filter clean and running properly when using AlgaeFix.
