I have just started cycling my tank so I could give my two Betta a good home. I have Anacharis that I hope will take root soon and am doing the shrimp cycle method. This 14gal tank has to sit on my desk by my window so the few hours of sunlight my room gets in the morning hits the tank. I have yet to turn the light on as well.
My question is, if I add Tetra Algae Control to my cycling tank and continue to add it with every water change and every time I top off the tank (this will be in a pre-treated jug of course) will this have any negative effects on my plants, tank, and fish (when they go in)? I really don't have to have a nasty looking tank to look at. If I have to I could partially close my curtains to reduce some of the light going into my tank by a fair amount (not including the hood light)
So if you guys have any suggestions that would be awesome :)
