Did they mention why bio-balls would cause algae? I've never heard that before. Are you referring to the big plastic bio-balls?Muirner said "About 1/2 a box of bio-rings (i'm trying to rid myself of algae and am trying everything)".
That is funny. I had an algea issue (BBA) and my fishstore said the reason I had it was because of the Bio-Balls I was using in my filter. I changed them and the algea went away.
Previously my filter had. Course filter media (green), bio-balls, ceamic rings with a layer of course media on top (green), and then filter floss (white stuff).
Now just course filter media, ceramic rings, course media, and then white filter floss.
Yes, the black plastic ones. No they didn't mention why, or I didn't fully understand them maybe, but they stated that when ever they used them in a cansiter filter there was always that algea issue after a while, so they said remove them.Did they mention why bio-balls would cause algae?
