This may be the wrong place to ask this question but . . .

Algae is such a popular topic here that I thought I'd try.  I have a 30T tank 
with NO plants (except two huge plastic ones).  The reason is that this is my 
Silver Dollar tank -- six Silver Dollars and one Bristlenose Pleco (to 
control -- that's a joke! -- the algae).  The tank is in the living room, near a 
southern exposure window.  But, it's not as bad as it sounds -- there is a 
permanent awning on the window and sunlight never enters the room.  There's a 
wonderful root-like piece of driftwood to 1) soften the water and give the Amazon 
blackwater effect.

I get green spot algae on the glass.  That's no big deal because I can scrape 
it off with my BigAlsOnline Preferred Customer Card.  (Glad it's good for 
something <G>).  But, there's a dark algae beginning to collect on my plastic 
plants.  Would you kind souls offer a suggestion as to what I might do to deter 
this algae on these "plants".  I really don't want to have to pull them out and 
scrub them.  Tanks a lot!  Fran

Growing old is inevitable; growing UP is optional.
