    Well I have a 20 gallon aquarium with 16 assorted fish. They are alive and seem healthy considering what they swim in. [​IMG] My water is basically green throughout. I've used countless algae destroyers. They work for a little while but it comes right back, with a vengence I might add. I also have used this product called Algone. It's supposed help suck up some of the nutrients the algae feeds on. It seems to help a little.

    Lastly I have a Whisper Power Filter 20, but algae seems to grow on it faster than inside the tank. I feed them 2-3 times a day with what they can consume in about a minute or two. I also change about 5 gallons of the water every week or so. They say it helps to vacuum the gravel.

    Any help with this is apreciated. I love my tank and I want it to look good. It's so embarassing when people drop by the house to see a green tank.

    I change the water and scrub my 20 gallon aquarium once a month (including the rocks). It takes a lot of work to have a sparkling clean aquarium all the time.

    My algae eaters do not work very hard either. I have tried several different types.

    Sometimes it helps to have a couple of bottom feeding fish in the tank.
