  1. If using phosphate remover in the external filter to help control algae in a non co2 planted tank,could you still use it as such if you went more high tech planted with co2 and higher fertiliser dosing ?

  2. I have a 50 l aquarium which did suffer with a small amount of BBA on Anubias. I use liquid and substrate feets and CO2. I tried using liquid carbon but found that the scum on the surface unsightly. My plants have now established and the BBA is in check so I have discontinued the use of liquid carbon. As a short term use and as an algaecide, it’s effective but I doubt it’s veracity as a growth enhancer over time.
