King British Algae Control

King British Algae Contol is an easy-to-use, natural product containing friendly micro-organisms to control filamentous algae, including blanket weed, and green water. Suitable for coldwater, tropical and marine aquariums.

King British Algae Control contains friendly micro-organisms, which are cultivated on barley straw. It controls filamentous algae, including blanket weed, and green water in your fish tank.

Captive fish live in a completely closed environment and are entirely dependent on their surrounding water. This means they are reliant on us to maintain their water quality at a suitable level for them to be able to live healthy, happy lives.

When to use King British Algae Control: • If green filaments of algae are visible in the aquarium • If a green haze is visible on aquatic plants, ornaments or the aquarium glass • Once every 14 days to control algal growth

How to use


Initial treatment: Use 5ml of King British Algae Control per 9 litres of water Maintenance treatment: Use 2ml of King British Algae Control per 9 litres of water once every 14 days

  1. Calculate the size of your aquarium. If you are unsure how to do this then please follow the instructions below.
  2. Shake the bottle well before use.
  3. Using the pipette provided, which dispenses 1ml, or the cap of the bottle which holds 4ml, measure the required amount of King British Algae Control.
  4. Dispense the treatment directly into the aquarium water.

To ensure the water in your aquarium remains free from algae we recommend carrying out a 10% water change and using King British Algae Control every 14 days.
