... when he's awake enough to archive them.  (Whoops, caught those E. 
horemani propagation ones in time!)

Actually, there is a little bit from you in there under "hair algae".  I 
also checked the FAQ, and the 1:20 bleach solution is mentioned by George 
in passing in his algae article.  Always looking for suggestions 
(volunteers?) to help write & improve.

By the way, I like to periodically post a general call to everyone for any
plant species photos, articles on anyone's experiences, or other material
for the Krib.  I just got access to a scanner again (after nearly a year
of none), so snail-mailed prints can work & I'll send them back.
