FAQ

How does algae develop? / What causes algae to grow? 

Algae occurs wherever water is found – even if the water is only a temporary presence. It does not become visible until it gets out of control, and may cause problems. Algae can proliferate very quickly in favourable conditions, grow over everything else and negatively impact the water parameters. To prevent algae, the first thing you need to do is stop conditions from developing that encourage algae growth:

1) Avoid and/or limit intense light from the sun or lighting by choosing a suitable, shaded location for the pond. Another useful tip is to include floating plants such as water lilies that also reduce the incidence of sunlight.
 
2) Reduce high nitrate and phosphate levels or prevent high levels from occurring using fast-growing pond and marsh plants. The plants absorb nitrate and phosphate as nutrients before excess nitrate and phosphate enable algae to grow.

3) Remove built-up sediment and other dead organic material from the water at an early stage.

4) Avoid overfeeding the fish in the pond.


What can I do to stop blanketweed? 

Blanketweed is a sign of good water quality combined with excessive light penetration. You can reduce light penetration in a totally natural way by adding and specifically fertilising floating plants such as hornwort or water lettuce. You can also effectively treat blanketweed with Tetra Pond AlgoFin followed by Tetra Pond AlgoClean.


What can I do to stop floating algae? 

Reduce light penetration and excessive nitrate and phosphate levels. The incidence of light can be reduced with water lilies or floating plants (hornwort, water lettuce), for example. Also make sure to feed your fish moderate quantities of food with low nutrient input levels. We recommend Tetra Pond AlgoRem to specifically target floating algae.


What can I do to stop blue-green algae? 

Blue-green algae means that your pond does not have the right biological balance. Make sure that your pond is sufficiently aerated, give your fish a moderate amount of food and remove sources of decay (caused by fish waste and dead plant material). We also recommend changing the water and adding filter bacteria such as Tetra Pond FilterStart. You should also clean your filter regularly.
To combat blue-green algae specifically, we recommend using Tetra Pond AlgoFin and Tetra Pond AlgoClean.


How can I prevent algae? 

To prevent algae, the first thing you need to do – early in the year – is stop conditions from developing that encourage algae growth:

1) Avoid and/or limit intense light from the sun or lighting by choosing a suitable, shaded location for the pond. Another useful tip is to include floating plants such as water lilies that also reduce the incidence of sunlight.
 
2) Reduce high nitrate and phosphate levels or prevent high levels from occurring using fast-growing pond and marsh plants. The plants absorb nitrate and phosphate as nutrients before excess nitrate and phosphate enable algae to grow.

3) Remove built-up sediment and other dead organic material from the water at an early stage.

4) Avoid overfeeding the fish in the pond.
 


My pond water is green, but clear. What’s the issue here? 

Green water indicates that floating algae is probably just starting to grow. We recommend using Tetra Pond AlgoRem to specifically inhibit its growth.


How does the product work?

Tetra Pond AlgoClean uses active oxygen to destroy the algae cell membranes. It takes effect immediately and eliminates even stubborn carpets of algae.


My fish died after I used this product. Did I do something wrong?

The treatment is safe for fish provided the dosing instructions are followed. It is important to ensure sufficient aeration during treatment.


I used the product but nothing happened. Did I do something wrong?

Tetra Pond AlgoClean should take effect shortly after use. The effect is indicated by discolouration of the algae, which is dissolved by the active oxygen. It can take 24 – 48 hours to remove stubborn and thick carpets of algae. In cases of strong blanketweed growth, an additional dose is recommended after one week. 


How often may the product be used? 

In cases of prolific algae growth, such as blanketweed on the edge of the pond or in areas of shallow water, Tetra Pond AlgoClean can be used once a week.


Is the product safe for koi, goldfish and sturgeon too? 

The product is safe for koi and goldfish but not for sturgeon or sturgeon-like fish.


Is the product safe for turtles and frogs too? 

To date, there has been no indication of intolerance among turtles and frogs.


Can the UV lamp be switched on during treatment? When should it be switched back on?

The UV lamp does not affect the efficacy of Tetra Pond AlgoClean and can therefore be switched on. In fact, a UV clarifier may even improve its performance.


Can this product be used in pools or swimming areas too? 

No, Tetra Pond AlgoClean is not suitable for use in pools or swimming areas. However, it can be used to clean waterfalls and streams.


Can the product be used in aquariums too? 

No, the product is designed only for use in ponds.


Do the fish need to be removed from the pond during treatment? 

Tetra Pond AlgoClean is safe for all fish if used correctly. However, you must make sure that the required water parameters are met: pH level <9 and carbonate hardness >3.


Should the pond filter be switched on while the product is added to the pond? 

Tetra Pond AlgoClean is sprinkled on the surface of the algae, so it doesn’t really matter whether the filter is running. However, strong filtration or a strong current may make it difficult to apply the product.


Is the product safe for my plants and filter bacteria? 

Tetra Pond AlgoClean is safe for filter bacteria. However, direct contact with plants and other pond inhabitants should be avoided.


What is the product’s shelf life after opening? 

The product has a shelf life of six months after opening.


What do I need to remember during treatment?

When using Tetra Pond AlgoClean, it is important to make sure that the required water parameters are met: pH level <9 and carbonate hardness >3. Direct contact with plants should also be avoided.


At what times of year can I use the product? 

The product can be used all year round if necessary.


At what temperature can I use the product? 

The product can be used regardless of the temperature.


I am currently using a different anti-algae product. Is there any possibility of interactions with the Tetra product? 

We cannot rule out interactions with other products.


Can I use this product to prevent algae? 

No, the product is not suitable for preventing algae.


How long does it take for the product to dissolve? 

The speed at which the product dissolves depends on the size of the pond and the water circulation. However, the product dissolves very well in water.
