Sounds like a big advertisement for Redox if you ask me. Dealing with any algae outbreak (bacteria in the case of Cyano
) with chemical warfare is about the worst way to treat the problem.
I like the emphasis in the article about using a skimmer, but other than that, is misses a lot of critical points. Red slime and hair algae feeds on undesired nutrients in the aquarium level, either added externally with water changes or produced by the internal biology. If you remove the red slime, what then in turn breaks down the extra nitrate?
