Seachem Flourish Advance REVIEW

We have got the Seachem Flourish Advance in our inventory for quite sometimes and I've also had the thought of giving them a review but have yet to put an effort into or nor do I know how to do it.

This one: Initially the tank was doing exceptionally well until suddenly with a little bit of algae growing but because the plants was growing so fast I wasn't really concern. But then after few more weeks when I was expecting the tank should...

Hair Algae!

Posted by Cheng Hoo Sew on

After I return from my trip the aquarium have grown quite a bit. More then I expected but as well as the hair algae too unfortunately. So we did more water changes and also replace the activated carbon with Seachem Matrix Carbon. After a few days the hair algae have been reduce significantly. Now there's barely any vision unless you know where to look.   And as I'm writing this blog I've decided to add a pack of Seachem Phosguard in the filter as well.  Unfortunately I can't take any nice picture to update you guys as my camera have some...
