[APD] Re: Algae: first principles
Both have a high ox/redox potential.
Algae prefer still water. Why is that?
Is it possible that alage is depressed by a high ox/redox?
Its not this simple, also I think Tom has some links that discredit the
barely straw stuff IIRC. If this were true, running ozone on a tank
would keep it algae free also direct dosing of H2O2 would help, bubbling
pure O2 thru the tank, etc...
I spend some time last Christmas challenging some of these popular
theories of why healthy plants == no algae (I have also found this to be
generally true) but I still don't think we have an idea why other than
its a little from column A and B and C and D. Thread starts somewhere
I'm a professional scientist but have given up on understanding this - I
chalk this one off to Zen :) You cannot understand "It", yet you can
still use "It" if you become one with the plants. Throw out the test
kits and meditate instead, its been more effective for me at least. The
more I try to reduce this to a science the more problems I seem to have.
