Hi James,

My tank has been set up about a year.  55gal tall plexi tank w/no CO2
(yet!), just two low-end 15w standard plant-friendly bulbs (haven't moved up
to Compacts yet, but have been wanting to).  Lots of plants, mainly swords,
with occasional dosing of liquid Flourish.  Substrate of bottom layer:
flourite (60%) and top layer standard gravel (40%).

Diet of small amount of flake, some pellets, and frozen bloodworms.

Never had the hair algae until last two months or so (maybe came with a fish
or snail?)

Let me know if you would like to know anything further...

Thanks for your help!
