Question for Paul K.:
You have often recommended the 5% bleach treatment for what you call "beard
algae" or "hair algae." Does this treatment eliminate other kinds of algae as
well? My biggest problem is the black stuff (sorry to use such technical
jargon). As I am building up a new tank now, I'm wondering if I should bleach
everything that goes into it to avoid this particular annoyance. (I'm really
trying to do everything right on this tank..........)
