Let me see if I got this straight...

After looking at your excellent website I am under the impression that you 
have an aquarium outside, getting indirect or even some direct tropical 
sunlight and you're able to control any algae outbreaks just by temporarily 
increasing the plant load? 

What water temperatures are reached in your set-up, if you don't mind my 

I live in a somewhat similar climate in Florida, USA and while I've been 
tempted with such an idea at times-  my best guess is that if I attempted 
such a project I'd end up with pea soup and little else.

Now growing aquarium plants in an outdoor pond which receives some direct 
sunlight is an idea with much merit and one which I intend to implement soon.
