    Now i know this sounds stupid and i don't like vodka but i'll prob drink it so this advice will not work for me even if it's true. (although i could get drunk with my fishies :D )

    But i've just been reading up about algae and people have used small doses of vodka every day in their aquariums to reduce nitrate and phosphate....

    Has anyone here actually tried this?

    I definitely wouldn’t do it because you can use it to euthanize fish. Kills them in about 5 seconds.
