So I’ve been having the problem with algae flourishing inside the plastic tubes and the casing for the filtration unit on my fishtank. Usually, this involves a complete disassembly, and scrubout using cleanser, brushes, and q-tips… A long procedure, messy, and gross.
“There has to be a better way” I said to myself, and so I took all the pieces put them in the bathroom sink, added some hot water, and then put a few cups of bleach in with them.
Ten minutes later, ALL the algae was gone from even the tightest nooks. ALL algae was gone from inside the pipes. All that was left was some light green water. Pull the plug, rinse off the stuff and everything is like brand-new!
