There is no way I'd waste my money on these as sammy says with co2 do it properly or dont do it there is no middle ground really that 95g bottle will just be washed out in a week and it will end out being detrimental to the plants and the scape as a whole save up by a co2 art duel stage reg and look for somewhere that sells 2kg out of date fe

This is not particularly CO2 related - daily water change and (gentle) physical removal (snails and otocinclus are more adept and gentle than human hands)I’ve got brown algae on leaves of stem plants
twirl a spiral (bottle/straw) brush to physically remove, toothbrush should also workcobwebby algae on my mosses
Amanos are much better algea eaters. They can eat few plant species though and cannot reproduce in freshwater.thanks guys, loads of food for thought here. The only live stock I have is 6x cheery shrimp......Ive read Amano are better for algae eating? also what snails are good?
Sorry another question.....today will be my 1st water change with the shrimp in the tank......up until now I've added cold water from a hose (tank temp is 22oC) which drops temp to about 19oC ....would this be bad for the shrimp?

Your shrimps will be fine in 19 c water
Nerite snails are decent algea eaters, just be sure you are ok with tiny white spots (eggs) in the tank.
