I'm not familiar with those.. I run a totally empty fluval 304 for extra flow/volume, and occasionally put some carbon or rowaphos in it for a couple days. You can just fill the sock as much as will fit in the available space. Or even cut it into two smaller bags.

I think that the best algea control product is RO/DI water. Get rid of the phosphates in the water that are a food source for the algea and it will die. I am always leary of adding chemicals to my tank. Cutting back on lighting and keeping your tank out of direct sunlight will also help.

lando: I already use RO water, which is giving very good results (4ppm TDS).

May try one of these phosphate pads.

I have 12 hours of lighting a day, and no direct sunlight on my tank.

This is incorrect. Some tangs such as Kole tangs may nibble on hair algae, but most tangs will steer clear of it.

I think I read somewhere that sailfin blennies like it, but I can't confirm this.
