JBL TV #2: Why do algae grow in the aquarium and how can you stop it?

A new video from JBL TV has been published on the subject of algae. Every aquarium enthusiast will come into contact with algae sooner or later. But that is not too bad and can be easily solved with a few simple steps and avoided in the long term.

When algae take over in the aquarium, there are always one or two causes. In this video, biologist Heiko Blessin explains very clearly and comprehensibly why algae grow at all and what we aquarium enthusiasts can do about it. The topic of algae in the aquarium has never been explained in a simpler and more understandable way!
