Oops, sorry, yeh, Barley Straw. Ok, I think I will try it, but
not anytime soon, my new tank I got doesn't have algae problems
But what I need to know is what's controlling the algae problem?
The straw itself? or something thats it put out from the straw?
I want to know if I should make a plastic ball and float it,
plant it, or just filter it through the filter itself. :) Of
course instead of using panyhose, the same effect can be produced
but using a filter net?
