Thank you.

Maybe my copy of TOA is different from yours. I went through mine page by page 
last night and almost every picture of a natural ecosystem that had plants 
growing underwater had algae in it. Some algae might have been difficult to see 
at first glance but it was there. I'll do a page-by-page review off the list if 
you want to. 

Also, I noticed in my copy of the new Tropica catalog that the author clearly 
states that algae is found everywhere plants can grow.
