    Some more info on this product:

    AlgaeFix Marine
    Active Ingredients: Poly[oxyethylene(dimethyliminio)ethylene(dimethyliminio )ethylene dichloride]: 4.5%
    Other Ingredients: 95.50%
    Directions for Use:
    It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
    Add 1 ml (1/5 tsp) for each 10 gallons or 5 ml (1 tsp) for each 50 gallons or 50 ml (10 tsp) for each 500 gallons of aquarium water. Repeat dose every 3 days until algae is controlled. Siphon or scrape any dead algae from aquarium. Once algal growth is under control, add one dose per week. Weekly doses of AlgaeFix Marine will control algal growth and reduce aquarium maintenance.

When used in saltwater AlgaeFix Marine will not harm snails, clams, scallops, shrimp, anemones, sea cucumbers, feather dusters, coralline algae, soft corals, hard corals, and other invertebrates. Does not discolor the water or cause foaming.

    There was some guy on the forum from Panama. I can't recall his user name but it was francisco something. He seemed to have good results with it. Is it available in SA?

    His name is Fernando Chang. Not sure if it's available in SA yet. We should ask Lanzo to do some homework on this.

    I believe someone has seen it at a lfs in JHB, i'll try to find out where. I wouldn't mind trying this product for a couple of months in a separate setup with some LR that's got some GHA on.

    even if it kills your algae , if you don't fix the cause , they will come back and it could be worst , the algae nice or not eats pollutions and will release what's they been eating and on top of it you'll have to deal with what's they don't eat any more .
    you're better of putting a few more snails , urchins ....
    i hope you understand what's i mean ...
