Thanks for the response. I had actually read about that method in one
of the previous articles of this list. My only concern is that
it might harm the plants in the tank at the moment. Any 
comments or personal observations on that? I'm especially worried 
about the fast growers like the Hygro. polysperma. 

Are there any methods to determine if my problem is indeed 
an algae bloom?

If there are no bad side effects for the plants, I think I will
try it this weekend. I still haven't been able to clear it.
