a cubic foot is 7.48 gallons.
a cubic foot is 1728 cubic inches
therefore
depth in inches times height in inches times width in inches divided by 1728 times 7.48 will give the number of gallons in the tank

ex
((12" X 12" X 36") / 1728) X 7.48 = 22.44 gallons

Note this is full to the top and doesn't account for displacement caused by gravel, ornaments or other stuff.

You will always need a water conditioner for your aquarium to neutralize chlorine, chloramines, and heavy metals present in tap water that can be harmful to fish. But they don't help with cloudy water. Is common cloudy water when your aquarium is in a cycle process.

An aquarium normally will cycle in 6 weeks; Ammonia and Nitrites need to be 0 ppm and Nitrates 5+ ppm when the cycle is complete. Nitrate levels between 5 to 25ppm is healthy. The ones you need to worried about is ammonia and nitrite.
-Best for ammonia control is: Microbe-Lift Ammonia Remover for Salt and Fresh Water Tanks.
-Best for nitrite and nitrate control is: Microbe-Lift Nite Out II for Home Aquariums.
-Best product to keep a transparent water (no cloudy) in your aquarium: Seachem Purigen 100ml ( Sell online only). Helps controls ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates; just put the bag behind your filter.

Question

Will Tetra AquaSafe decrease/increase algal growth?

I am trying to create a large freshwater aquarium to study crayfish for a science project, and I need a chlorine-removing chemical such as this one because chlorine is somewhat high in my local tap water. however I also want to keep the aquarium as natural as possible with natural algae levels. Will this chemical increase or decrease algal growth at all or am I good to go?
