The first step to using Tetra Algae Control is to clean the aquarium of as much algae as possible. Remove the activated carbon filters, and replace them 6 to 8 hours after the last dose of Tetra Algae Control. Next, add the appropriate volume of Tetra as directed on the package. This is typically 1 milliliter per 12 gallons of aquarium water. Tetra Algae Control may be repeated using the same doses every three days for up to three total doses. Finally, clean the dead algae from the tank.
- Prepare the aquarium
Clean the aquarium, removing as much algae as possible from it. Remove the activated carbon filters.
- Add the Tetra Algae Control
Add 1 milliliter of Tetra Algae Control for every 12 gallons of aquarium water. For smaller aquariums, use a dropper applicator at a rate of one drop per gallon. Make sure that you do not overdose. It is best to add Tetra Algae Control to the aquarium in areas of high water agitation or by diluting the Tetra Algae Control in a cup of aquarium water. Ensure that the aquarium is aerated well. Replace the activated carbon filters 6 to 8 hours after the last dose of Tetra Algae Control.
- Repeat the process as required
Tetra Algae Control may be repeated using the same doses if needed every three days for up to three total doses. When all the necessary doses have been applied, clean the aquarium of dead algae.
