Karen let me take a moment to clarify.  First I should have known better
then to paraphrase off the top of my head.  And also I should have known
better then to _mis_quote to most often misquoted person on the list:)  If
for no other reason you always catch it:):)  In an Aquarium Fish Magazine,
article titled Living With Algae; "It will often disappear spontaneously
when water conditions have been improved.  High Iron levels have also been
implicated in the proliferation of this algae."  You were talking about
Brush and Beard algae.  So in my brain fart I left out an all important
qualifier, once the water conditions are correct.  Sorry for that.

Yes I have learned this, three strikes and I am out:)

Thanks for catching another Randall misquote:)
