I have some nusiance algae in my display tank plus my mag levels seam a little low on occation. I read some people talking about the Tech M killing nusiance algae. But I read they had elevated the mag levels way up, which I don't want to do. I would just add it as a weekly/bi-weekly supliment. And yes I do have a test kit, so I wouldn't just be blindly adding it. I'm just curious about the posible effect on the nusiance algae. Has anybody had experience with this?

Kent's Tech M kills one algae: bryopsis. If what you have is not bryopsis, you are wasting your time (and money) by treating it with Tech M. It will have no effect on hair algae, caulerpa, chaetomorpha, valonia, etc.
