RE: Algae Balls...

It may not be the same kind of algae, but I have been using a type that
forms dense little balls when grazed by shrimp, livebearers and snails. I
don't know about the 'floating with nuetral boyancy' part, but I usually
stuff it in an out of the way corner. My tank is low tech (I even live with
a bit of bba) but these so far (1 year plus) have not tried to take over the
tank in any way. So far, if I want more, I have to pull it apart. It hasn't
spontaneosly generated in other parts of the tank. The Endler's like hiding
in it, and the snails usually nibble on it at night. Bee and Amano shrimp
often work it over, too.

Subject: Algae Balls...

There was a post a few days ago regarding Algae Balls...

Does anyone have a definitive answer as to the good or evils of this little
thing?  Or if it can be attached to something?
