Tankguard algae inhibitor
Surface protection technology specialists Tankguard UK have looked at tackling algae in a different way to the norm by actually coating the inner walls of the tank while keeping all other things like lighting and water quality the same.
They have come up with an incredibly thin, invisible layer of protection that coats the glass, and although algae will grow on it, it is the removal that is much easier - even easy enough to remove with your finger.
Nanotechnology has been used to apply a permanent chemical bond to aquarium walls and the coating is inert and suitable for all coldwater, tropical and marine aquariums. What's more, you can apply it yourself as it is also available in kit form.
