Huh. I read someplace, either in the Dupla magazine or thekrib
that it's cause by "high iron" which goes a long way to explain
why it's such a problem for me. Every other algae I just laugh at
change the water a lot and it goes away but I found this stuff
utterly unkillable and had to resort to drastic (h202) mesures
to eradicate it in situ and quarentine all incoming plants.

One lousy cel and within a month I have pounds of the stuff no
matter what I do. But, I think it's gone now, it's not in any og
my big tanks but may exist in a jar or two around here someplace.
