Right on Ed! All this Bullroar about bleaching everything is nonsense. Once
again I've cleaned a plant from the Goldfish tank covered in "hair" (by
this term I presume we are talking about the black fuzzy algae) algae by
putting it in with my four large SAEs. This morning there is only a sooty
trace of it. 

Why panic about a little algae. Take your time. Fiddle with nutrients, get
some SAEs and be patient. It's just a part of the ecosystem.
