Well, Gitte, it's like this.  Algae are alternately considered plants or 
plant pests.   But either way I think most folks would agree algae are on 
topic.   There is even an ARTICLE about algae in the latest issue of 
Planted Aquaria Magazine.   So algae poisons are on topic.  Especially to 
those who find algae a pest, as it inhibits their ability to manage their 
planted tanks.
