Advice 1: How to get rid of green in the aquarium

A beautiful aquarium is a true decoration of any apartment. But if it is not to care or to violate it inept actions biological balance, all beauty disappears. Glass are overgrown, the water may become green from the rapid development of single-celled algae. In this case, to restore the broken balance?
How to get rid of green in the aquarium
The rapid development of algae that cause algal bloom, occurs when the bright aquarium lighting, high temperature and high content in water of nutrients. The cause is often the use of too much dry food – the aquarium inhabitants don't manage to eat it all and, as a consequence, the remains rot and decompose.
Faced with the flowering of water, do not try to clean by partial substitution. Adding fresh, you bring in the aquarium and algae need minerals, algal blooms increases.
To restore the disturbed biological balance, turn off the aquarium lighting. If he stands near the window, cover the window, protecting the aquarium from direct sunlight. Stop feeding fish – week-long hunger strike will not only hurt them, but on the contrary, will benefit. Aeration may work within the water, oxygen will accelerate the oxidation of decomposition products, animal feed and water purification. Remove from the bottom using the siphon the accumulated garbage. During the week you will be able to recover the normal operation of the aquarium.
One of the ways of dealing with algal blooms is the use of Daphnia. Start the aquarium with a large number of shrimp – so much that the fish didn't immediately eat. Unicellular algae are the food source of Daphnia, during the day the water in the aquarium will be clean. This method requires good aeration of the aquarium – otherwise, the Daphnia may die, that will only exacerbate the bloom.
The indirect cause of the rapid development of algae is a small number of plants in the aquarium. When plants are many, they actively absorb minerals, as a result, the algae for the rapid development they are not enough.
Even in a properly functioning aquarium walls gradually covered with a thin green patina. Clean this plaque scraper with a razor blade. If the plaque is of brown color, it indicates insufficient aquarium lighting. The back wall of the aquarium is not cleaned.

Advice 2 : Why green water

Summer is a great time for travel, walking, bathing. As you know, the bathing season begins on the feast of Ivan Kupala Ilyin and ends the day. On this day comes the beginning of flowering of water.
Why green water


The heat of the summer, the sun shines especially brightly, this helps to ensure that the water is well heated, the rays of light penetrate the green algae that contribute to the development of cyanobacteria. These microorganisms make the water green. They are formed in stagnant water in contact with air, and the abundant light and favorable temperatures begin to actively proliferate. This means that contrary to popular belief, "bloom" the water is not due to vegetation and algae, due to bacteria that their bodies literally paint with water


However, the culprits for the algae algae are. Their concentration in the pond can be overwhelming. Danger to human health such green water is not, however, bathe in it would not want someone of the campers.

Meanwhile, the flowering of the river can have a detrimental effect on its inhabitants. It is proved that the overabundance of vegetation and the active development of algae in the river water leading to reduced oxygen levels, which in turn causes the death of large fish and the rotting bodies of water. Small fish are more mobile, and therefore, typically, they migrate up the river, entering the estuary.

Of course, the ever-green river can not be. Typically, the activity of the bacteria, and the development of algae is reduced with the arrival of the first autumn rains and decreased water temperature. By September in the middle belt of the Russian river water gets its original color, the lake cleared to the end of the month.
