Hi All,

If anyone is battling algea problem and any natural methods failed so far, im guessing you probably considering using Vinegar or Hydrogen Peroxide. Don't !

I consider myself as experianced reefer, and i can only recommend Fluconazole to treat and them maintain any algea infested tank

I can supply any quantity of Fluconazole, i will also guide you through a very easy step by step process to keep your tank in mint condition from then on.

Please let me know if you need any advise or medicine for your tank. I will try to respond asap.

Regards

MM 😉👍🏥🚑🐟🐬🐠🐠

Thanks:


Mike

Hi,

The medication you're promoting is an anti-yeast and fungus infection treatment for humans. It's widely available from pharmacies.

Before you go recommending people A: Use this in their reef tanks or B: Buying it from you, can you give us some evidence of this being an effective treatment of problem algae in reef aquariums and what benefits people have in buying it through you?

Thanks, Mike.

Hi Mike,

Sorry for popping out without good amount of info behind it, I was expecting that Fluconazole method is well known in Reef community in UK.

Yes Fluconazole is an anti-fungal medicine initially designed to battle fungal infection in humans.

Its also available over the counter, you are correct, https://www.boots.com/canesten-oral-capsule-1-capsule-10032794

1 capsule 150mg will sets you back around 10-11£ and that will only treat approx 6-7 gallons of water. Recommended dose to treat GHA & Bryopsis is 20mg per gallon.
I can provide 7x 200mg capsules at around 20£ + postage to people trying to battle GHA, Bryopsis & Dino in their tanks.
Anyone can google this, it worked great in my two tanks & as I mentioned before is a well know method within Marine/Reef community worldwide.

There are multiple videos about this method also on youtube.

Please let me know if require any further clarification, also feel free to remove this post if you think it violates this forum rules and guidelines.

Thanks !   

Thanks:

I’ve just ordered a similar product from Amazon at £25 to treat 100 litres before seeing your post. All the recommendations state to turn the protein skimmer off for 7 days. Why is this?

Hi,

I dont sale my treatment on Amazon, ebay only ( promoted listing with Purple&White capsule picture ).

As for the skimmer being off, You need to do it for 2 reasons :

1. Skimmer will remove medication you are about to add to your tank effectively making whole treatment a complete waste of time.
2. Skimmer will overflow with great amount of foam due to breakdown of any bacteria/algae = NO3 excessive build up & due to Fluconazole being present in the water in general.

 Im advising to my customers to turn it off for entire treatment time ( 14-21 days).  If you can remove the cup, then you can keep it ON for extra water flow ( oxygen delivery ), even then in some cases skimmers tend to overflow ( tanks were algae completely covered live rock ) through cup mount.

So if you will end up in the position :

a) You can remove cup & skimmer doesn't overflow = keep in ON at all times for extra water agitation.
b) Skimmer version doesn't allow to keep it ON without the cup = Leave it OFF for the whole treatment period.
c) Skimmer can stay ON without the cup but still overflows = as b)


Lastly, after 7 days, start monitoring your NO3 levels on daily basis, if it goes over 2, do water change (25%) and add more treatment calculating correct amount to compensate for water change L or Gal.

Best of luck

Thanks:

Crikey it works like a dream!! All of the GHA has gone.
Just completed a huge water change to get rid of the excess nitrates.
