What can I add to increase algae growth for my turbo snails?


I have a 10gal nano with two 36W PC lights, and I was wondering if there are any additives that will keep a constant algae growth to feed them.

Thank you.

Take care.

Not that you want to add to a reef tank. If you are adding nutrients to the water, on purpose, you will soon find your tank over run with micro algae and hair algae. Don't worry too much....the turbos will reach a balance with the algae growth.
