 Plants  are  more  of  carbon  in  mass  so  the  carbon  dependency  in  form  of  CO2  or  other  solutions  definitely  helps  them  to  grow  fast,  strong  and  healthy.  Strong  plants  means  better  equipped  plant  to  fight  the  algae.
 
 just  wanted  to  know  that  how  much  important  is  oxygen  for  plants  in  fighting  algae.  So  in  water  rich  with  oxygen  do  plants  have  an  upper  edge  as  Compared  to  plants  growing  in  water  which  is  low  in  oxygen?
 
 if  the  answer  is  yes  then  up  to  what  extent  does  the  oxygen  plays  a  role(visibly  effective  role  or  on  a  micro  level  which  is  not  noticeable  to  eyes)?
 more  questions  to  come  later  based  on  the  replies.

 Plants  use  nutrients,  co2,light  and  process  them  to  form  energy.
 Oxygen  plays  no  part  in   photosynthesis,  hence  will  not  be   factor  in  algae  removal.
 however  plants  do  need  oxygen  for  respiration.

 I  have  this  doubt.  Do  Algae  need  oxygen  to  grow  and  sustain?

 my  veiw  is  also  the  same  o2  is  for  respiration,  but  the  plants  adapted  to  oxygen  rich  waters  may  need  greater  o2  at  night,  so  they  may  grow  faster
 leaving  no  nutreints  for  algae.

 'O'  will  kill  algae  but  'O2'  will  not.  O2  does  not  have  any  role  in  Photosynthesis  as  well  as  in  algae  removal.

 So  Tirtha  do  you  encourage  O3-Ozanizer?  that  would  give  out  [O].  Neutral

 thanks  a  lot  all.  my  query  stand  answered.  but  O2  will  definitely  encourage  the  growth  of  the  'good'  bacteria  and  thus  will  help  in  reduce  nitrites.

 NO.  Not  at  all.  A  very  little  overdose  of  [O]  will  simply  burn  your  plants.  Push  as  much  as  CO2  you  can,  and  keep  the  algae  at  bay.   Smile
