Upon releasing ultra algae x to the world, we thought that is seemed like a very promising product. We mean to say of course that it was a “cure all” or “cure almost” of all your algae problems in your aquarium. Seeing the before an after shots posted up about the new Ultra Algae X confirmed what we already knew. However there are several details that we did have questions on and thankfully we have found the answers to most of these.Â We have a large howto guide on Ultra Algae X which is below after the jump for your review. Also we might note that you need to turn your UV and ozone off as it will destablize the product. Interesting.
Dose in the evening after the lights are out, the photosynthestics of the algae will not work during the night so the algae X will better work
10 ml Algae X of 200L Water every 2 days
DO NOT OVERDOSE AND CALCULATE THE LITRES EXACTLY !!!!
Dose every 2 days until the algae has gone but not more than 21 days at a time
lighting interval max 6 hours/day
Blue light can be on for 10 hours
Make sure you Heavily skim!!
No water change or Dosing of any Trace Elements during treatment
No Ozone , Carbon , Zeolith or Absorber during Treatment
3.) When to use Algae X
Algae X works against every Algae ( not against bacterias !!! )
o Derbesia, and other feather algae
o Bubble and Goldalgeas, Halimeda calcerous algae’s
o Bryopsis Algea need longer treatment
Dinoflagellates (brown pest )
If Dinoflegalletes comes back after a few days then dose again for some days until all Dinos have gone
It does not work against Cyanobacteria !
If you dose correctly the product is harmless against all corals and other invertebrates Algea X has been tested for 10 years without negative effect
Redox potential will fall slightly
Sea Urchin and Clams can be harmed after longer use or overdosing
Caulerpas in Mud Filter or Refugium can be harmed also. Remove it.
To much die back of algae can send back the poison which is in the algae so please remove all algae by hand if its possible
The water can become a little bit cloudy
Tridacna clams can also harmed if you treat against dinoflagellates
Corals Polyps may close for a few days
