deteriorated substrate permeability which has taken place over time. If your aquarium is still in the initial stage,
blue green algae can be reduced by covering the substrate portion of the tank with black paper to block the light.
Or else, it is very hard to completely get rid of the algae that have already propagated. To remove blue green algae at the
substrate, it is advised to insert a thin spatula between the glass surface and substrate to scrape the algae out carefully,
and then suction them off together with sludge with a hose. Subsequently, it is recommended to apply Phyton Git to the affected area
with a dropper to control the further growth of blue green algae. If the algae problem is very serious, the substrate, at least for
the foreground location, should be replaced with new Aqua Soil. This enables you to have the substrate free from algae and also
promotes the growth of aquatic plants.
