Yikes, some horror stories there! Thanks everyone. I think the fish will go on holiday somewhere and then swap them out for others. Sounds like it will be a good idea to have them out of the tank for sure.

Did you spot treat or dose the whole water column?

I think not running pumps and filters is where some people run into trouble when they have fish in tank .
This has always been one of my go to link for H2O2 and Gluteraldehyde use .

All the info is updated so you only need to read the first post.

Quick update - we tried one-off dose of doxycycline (for birds I think - one of the tetracycline group anyway so may not have done much in hard water).

And dosing and re-dosing the furan 2.

Im told the tank is looking better. So perhaps furan 2 does work on BGA (probably only useful in New Zealand where can get furan 2 but not erythromycin I guess).,

Furan 2 messes up some of my plants so it would reason it alone may nip the BGA..
Nice find and mind your dosing.. I find damage done is death to leaves/moss but the whole plant can rebound once the furan is removed..

Great info - it seems to be working out better than pulling tank down. Seemed like getting to stage of selling off tank which would be a shame for money spent on it (although tempting to get!).

Killing blue-green algae.

Just saw tank tonight and looking very good. Expensive as the guys used just about all of the 850gram container(!), but was just sitting there in cupboard anyways. Did say to help themselves if wanted any as well.
