Aquascape's EcoBlast - Effective against String Algae


Dave Kelly – Aquascape’s Tech Guy – discusses EcoBlast which has been proven to be very effective against string algae. If you already have a growth of string algae in the spring, we have found it most effective to apply every 3 days for 2 – 3 weeks until you are in control and then drop back to once a week for the remainder of the summer. Use about 4 ounces per 1000 gallons and don’t forget to turn off your pump for an hour after applying to a stream or waterfall.
If you are concerned about applying an algaecide and want to absolutely eliminate all of the string algae, please check out the IonGen.

    When we use EcoBlast (which we love; the only product that we feel has worked for us…and we have tried several) do we continue adding good bacteria along with it? thanks

    Most definitely keep using the beneficial Bacteria. The bacteria competes with the algae for the nutrients and is what really “polishes” the water.
