  1. So I’ve gotten some easy carbon, but I was wondering how to use it to treat my black beard algae on my plants, Zoe’s bio filter, etc.
  2. I know that Easy Carbon says it is safe for fish, snails and shrimp, but is it safe for frogs?
  3. I'm looking for something to combat the green hair algae in my tank. I know on the site it says that Easy Carbon is safe for snails, shrimp and shrimp. Is it safe for frogs? Thanks
  4. Effects of dosing all in one, carbon, and iron at same time. I have been doing 3 different intervals starting after water change
  5. My monte carlo has finally begun to adapt after probably a month or more and I'm seeing some clusters of new growth but all around it and on it I have a hazy layer of green hair algae that's pearling 😠 . The non-carpet zones I've been able to gravel vac and the tumbling has kept different sides of the substrate exposed to light so the green hair is less bad there. At times I've even picked at my substrate removing one pebble at a time with tweezers and replacing it with a fresh pebble from the bag, but it turns out that's not a sustainable strategy. I'd like to give my MC a leg up so it can really get the light it needs, so I'm considering an algaeside like easy carbon. I've mentioned in other posts that I had my first berried shrimp drop her eggs and was bummed out about it, so now I'm extra paranoid. Would easy carbon hurt my shrimp's eggs or their desire to carry them?
  6. I take care of two tanks for my elderly parents. My dad needs slot of help to remember to do things. Right now I put the Easy Green and Easy Carbon in pre-metered vials (one vial for each per day) in a tray labeled for each day. This works well for the large tank but not for the nano tank. The vials are so big he can never tell if he used them or not with the small amount of liquid in them. Can I pre-mix the easy green and easy carbon in a large vial of water? I am looking at like 1ml of each with 10ml of water. This will make sure he keeps up with the doses.
  7. Have any of you used a algae control like Fritz Algae Clean Out? I noticed co-op doesn't sell anything like this....maybe for a reason....??
  8. I really want to get a great planted tank but I can't seem to be able to feed my plans without feeding algae. I wouldn't mind the algae but it grows on the plans and suffocates them. My lights are on timers and I'm adding flourish liquid fertilizer and root tabs. I've been trying to keep NO3 around 20 to 30 ppm and I've been pretty successful. My lights are on a timer and go on and off so they're on 8 of 12 hours (two separate two hour breaks in the day) I started using some gluteraldrahyde (the ingredient in easy carbon) to stop the algae and it's slowly killing it back but I'm afraid 1) it's harming the thin leaf plants 2) as soon as I reduce the dose I'm going right back to growing more algae. What should my next steps be?
  9. I’m thinking of trying some carbon to help get rid of some BBA, but my vals are doing great, getting tall and putting out little shoots. The tank is maintaining good parameters; it’s a newish 20g. I read that carbon isn’t good for vals, so I’d appreciate ideas. Thanks!
  10. i was going to order easy carbon to control the algae growth as a precautionary measure, but i have plants link java moss, Vallisneria and Anachris. if i apply easy carbon on 55 gallon and 40 gallon tank will it be suicidal to the plants. any experiences with same kind of plants.. please advice
  11. Im thinking about doing a half a dose more of easy carbon in my tank to eradicate my gsa and my staghorn algae but im worried its going to kill my chrismas moss bridge. What do you guys think?
