Green Aquarium Water: Causes, Prevention, and Treatment

Green aquarium water is a condition in aquariums characterized by a distinct green hue in the water, resulting from a proliferation of microscopic free-floating algae. This phenomenon typically stems from an imbalance in nutrients, particularly high levels of nitrates and phosphates, often compounded by excessive light exposure. While these algae are not directly harmful to fish or aquatic plants, they can pose challenges by depleting oxygen levels and blocking light, potentially affecting the health of the aquarium’s inhabitants and impeding plant growth.
