Green water, daphnia, Algone, Belyjo plants

Hi everyone,

I recently developed green water in three of my tanks so I puchased a daphnia 
pulex culture from LFS cultures.  If filtration in your aquarium is limited 
to a sponge type, they will help clear the tank in a few days but most likely 
your fish will enjoy eating them before much is achieved.  I am now trying 
Algone which I believe is based on the well known fact, in pond circles 
anyway, that barley straw gets rid of unwanted algae.    Algone appears to be 
a mix of plant fibres that add something to the water that decreases or 
eliminates nitrites, nitrates and algae.  I have added the product to several 
of my tanks.  It has been 4 to 5 days and I see no new algae growth, plants 
are doing fine, water is clear in tanks without green water and water appears 
to be starting to clear in tanks with a green algae problem.  The product is 
designed to take about two weeks for complete results.  I did not take 
nitrite and nitrate readings before usint the product. If others would like 
to try this product for FREE, contact me offline.  I have a limited number of 
samples from the manufacturer that I will share.

On a completely different subject, I am importing Belyjo "invitrio" produced 
plants from Canada and would like to trade some of these plants for 
interesting swords, aponogetons etc.  I have Rotala rotundifolia, Sagittaria 
subulata, Bacopa caroliniana, Bacopa monnieri, Lobelia cardinalis, 
Potamogeton crispus, Aponogeton longiplumulosus, Hydrocotyle leucocephala, 
Hygrophila rosanervis, Ludwigia repens and Myriophyllum exalbescens for 
trade.  Please contact me offline if you have plants to trade.
