  • 3 Tips To Control Aquarium Algae

    What is algae? Algae is a photosynthetic organism that lives within our aquariums. There are many types of algae, but they share similar traits and can be generally encouraged or inhibited to grow in similar ways. Algae is a naturally occurring organism; it can and will enter every aquarium by a number of different vectors. There is no way to stop algae from entering and growing within an aquarium, only ways to inhibit its growth so that it doesn’t take over. In fact many types of algae are essential to the health of a tropical aquarium and some healthy growth demonstrates that a tropical aquarium is cycled and has an established biological population. Some types of grazing fish species require algae in their diet to survive and in these cases algae can be seen as a positive organism. Wha...

  • Lab Simulates Outdoor Algae Growth

    Algae can be turned into renewable biofuel, which is why scientists want to discover an inexpensive, fast-growing strain of a. lgae. Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have developed a system to speed up this search. The unique climate-simulating system uses temperature controls and multi-colored LED lights to mimic the constantly changing conditions of an outdoor algae pond. By simulating outdoor climates inside the lab, the system saves researchers time and expense.

  • How to Grow Algae with high yield

    This video demonstrates the steps and criteria for high yield algae culturing. Tips for high yield growing: 1) Sufficient light is provided for the storage of algae 2) Optimum Temperature is provided for the storage of algae 3) Autoclaved Stock solution, media ( BBM, EG, ), trace element supplement are used to cultivate algae 4) Test the optimum ratio of media and water in a culture. Different strains have different sensitivity toward nutrient concentration. 5) Test the adaptability of algae in different concentration of CO2 and light intensity. Higher light intensity does not always result higher growth in certain kind of algae ( E.g. Euglena) 6) Color of cultures does not necessarily show the adaptability of the algae 7) OD measurement and microscopic examination can effectively monito...

  • Incredible Macro Algae (Chaeto) Growth in Refugium

    This is the macro algae (Chaetomorpha Algae, also called Spaghetti Algae) growth in my refugium. You can almost watch it grow in real time. Well, almost. The algae growth is benefitial for the display tank since it takes out nitrates and phosphates and therefore reduces the algae growth in the display tank. I just had the refugium for 3-4 weeks now and the macro algae growth like crazy. I guess I have lots of phosphates and nitrates in my aquarium.

What is algae? Algae is a photosynthetic organism that lives within our aquariums. There are many types of algae, but they share similar traits and can be generally encouraged or inhibited to grow in similar ways. Algae is a naturally occurring organism; it can and will enter every aquarium by a number of different vectors. There is no way to stop algae from entering and growing within an aquarium, only ways to inhibit its growth so that it doesn’t take over. In fact many types of algae are essential to the health of a tropical aquarium and some healthy growth demonstrates that a tropical aquarium is cycled and has an established biological population. Some types of grazing fish species require algae in their diet to survive and in these cases algae can be seen as a positive organism. What causes algae and how to prevent it Algae, just like other photosynthetic organisms, requires three things to grow: Water, light and nutrients. Obviously in an aquarium, reducing availability of water is impossible but we can limit the other factors contributing to algae growth. Generally when dealing with algae it’s not normally just one factor contributing to its’ spread, but a combination, identifying these factors and changing them will inhibit algae growth. Aquarium Lighting Aquarium lights are essential for seeing our fish and growing aquarium plants, handled incorrectly though, lighting can be a direct contributor to aquarium algae problems. Photo period Having your aquarium lighting on for too long can cause an over availability of light. Algae requires a relatively long photo period, compared to aquarium plants, before it really starts to photosynthesize and begin growing. Many people like to have their aquarium lights on most of the day to view them or because they think the fish need it to be happy. Although the first point is fair enough, fish will be happy with the ambient day light in the room. In this case it would be ideal to reduce the photo period (how long the light is on for) to around 8 hours a day. You can also break up the photo period. For example, if you work during the day, why not have the lights on for two hours in the morning while you’re getting ready and for six hours in the evening for viewing. This will help reduce the availability of light to the algae and inhibits its speed of growth. Wrong type of light Another contributing factor to algae growth is having the wrong type of lighting in your aquarium. Make sure that your aquarium light unit is designed for tropical aquariums and gives off the correct spectrum of light and intensity. Having the incorrect light temperature or light intensity can inhibit the growth of plants but encourage the growth of certain types of algae. Nitrates & phosphate Nitrates and phosphates are the main culprits when it comes to promoting algae growth in an aquarium. They are both natural fertilizers and excellent for growing plants and algae alike. Both of these fertilizers will generally be present in drinking tap water and nitrate is a by product of the nitrogen cycle that happens naturally in a tropical aquarium. The best way to reduce the availability of phosphate is to use a phosphate absorbing filter media which goes into your filter.
