Algae growth is common in most fish tanks. There are many different products out there on the market that will help control this growth. But do these products actually eliminate the algae problems? Or do the just temporarily get rid of it?

Ask yourself these few questions and they will help you find out why your fish tank might have algae growth:

To help solve this problem, try to move the fish tank out of the direct sunlight and if you are able, upgrade to a glass aquarium. Furthermore, Mystery Snails are a quick fix to your algae problem and they will help clean up the debris along the bottom of the tank also. Algae eaters and live plants will also help to minimize the growth of algae. With live plants in your tank, they also create a natural source of oxygen and other nutrients that are beneficial to the fish that inhabit your tank.
