The UK magazine Practical Fishkeeping is currently running a series of articles on planted tanks. They say that for a healthy planted tank everything must 'in balance', and they have just had a section on algae, which says that excessive nitrate and phosphate cause algae. I do wish some people would keep up... (shakes head in mild anger at stupidity of magazine writers)

I think Tom probably is out of the mainstream, at least here in the UK (Europe maybe?). Of course, it is the 'right' stream...
