Has anyone used algone before?

I have a little high nitrate level so I decided to try algone it said it's 100% chemical free but now my panther grouper has a pink color to him and sits face down at the top of the water is this normal?

Before resorting to other substances, did you attempt some water changes?

Personally I wouldn't keep using it if your fish are reacting negatively to it.

100% chemical free... Unless it's a perfect vacuum in a bottle it's scamming you big time...

I have a friend that tried it and it made a mess of his corals. I got some of them and after about a week they looked just fine. He only had a tomato clown and a sargent major at the time, they weren't effected.

Any idea where the nitrates are coming from? Food and water is the 2 biggest ones check the water you have mixed up before doing a water change some times the RO unit will need new filters. If you are using frozen food thaw it and rinse it if possible. If I can't rinse it I use a paper towel to absorb the water and then add a little RO water then absorb that too.
