An overabundance of fertilizer, particularly NO3 and PO4, will not cause
only in the special case of well-maintained, planted aquaria.  It does cause
algae in other
environments, including less-than-well-maintained aquaria and natural
waters.   I
don't think there is any scientific doubt about this.
