I don't think it's at all possible to avoid *all* algae. It will always 
exist in the tank to some degree or another. No? What I was meaning to 
say was that it seems to me that if we are growing plants well, it 
follows that the algae are not doing so well. To say that if we decrease 
the availability an essential nutrient to the plants, that some/all 
algae may have an advantage is the tautology.
