Now *I know* that was hard sell.

If you keep after it.

You can get rid of most problems this way. My dosing and nutrient routine
has remained the same since and no presence has been noted.

Well it's just _a few_ things. These are all good ones to use. The real test
is actually having a group of folks over to show your hard work off. You'
d be surprised at the stress level but it raises you to new heights.
Yes, Amano's tanks do have algae and you can even see it in a number of the
tank pictures. Yes, he's a good photographer, but it's not perfect. Nothing
is. I think many folks like him and others with nice aquascapes are real
funny about having anyone come over or take pic's without a good long
warning so they can get things in nice shape. Most folks, even the best,
slack off. But we know how to get things back in shape pretty quick:)
