It only states pond/freshwater on the package so I would avoid it..

Are you having a nitrate problem?
If you give some information on your system/current nitrate levels,etc... we can recommend a good direction to reduce it..

Yeah my thought too, will just use it in my freshwalter tank.

Yeah I have hair algae at the moment and high nitrate levels circa 50ppm so massive.

I have been using nitrate removal liquid for the last week, I will be doing a water change this week as it states to do that after a week.

I don't have any turbo snails at the moment so will be adding those soon.

All other parameters are at zero or 0.1ppm

And how old is the tank?
What size tank?

The "best" method for nitrate removal is simply doing water changes..
A 50% water change will reduce the nitrate levels by 50%...

Carbon dosing (vinegar/vodka/red sea nopox) also works just fine when paired with a decent skimmer to export the excess bacteria,etc...
