Re: Is all "green water" created equal? (RE: [APD] To pearl or not to pearl...)

  Probably just the fact that fewer and fewer tannins are leaching
into the water from the peat and you're seeing a color change because
of it.  As you do water changes, they are being diluted and the water
color is becoming lighter.
  It could still be algae, as I've seen tanks like this at pet stores
that are overstocked and don't get cleaned often enough.  The water is
a clear green.  My assumption is the algae has enough nutrients, but
not the light to explode into a bloom in these tanks, as they're
usually very dimly lit.
