Well then....
LOL

I have used the following product with awesome success- had to treat a total of 3 times over the course of a year, never seen it since. The 3 times were just because that's when it showed up, not because I had it all year and it took me that long to get rid of.

It is simply called "Blue-Green Algae Remover" and it is pink powder. It is by Ultra Reef Products and states it is safe for tropical fish, freshwater, and invertebrates.

I had a slimey algae problem just a few weeks ago, and had been fighting a losing battle, until I used maracyn/maracyn 2 combo to treat another problem. To my happy suprise, The algae was gone! But, if you try it, be absolutely sure to use an extra airstone and increase oxygen in tank! The algae dies quickly, and suddenly you can have a low oxygen disaster. You do not want to be rushing around, finding a pump and airstone at odd hours, this is experience talking!

I ended up breaking down the tank, fish went into another tank and plants into a seperate tank to be cleaned...Just saw more blue-green algae pop up today....I'm going to give that blue-green algae remover a try.

It takes a couple of days so don't expect results overnight.
