Hi Neil, Good to hear from you again. Hey, I know they are sometimes
tedious but usually our "wars" (substrate, heating cables, bleach) end up
giving lots of information. For instance, if we'd all just said, "yes,
well, I guess that's right. Bleach is the only way to control FA."...well
then we wouldn't have learned all that neat stuff about filmentous algae
and ways to control it. And you probably wouldn't have posted what you did,
which was very interesting. Of course there was the
"what-colour-is-water-in-a-white-bucket?" war which makes the bleach war
look like a couple of shots in the dark. <g>
