Re: [APD] Re: Garbage on the list/plants

All I can say James is , you're right, absolutely and end of story. I didn't
see one word you wrote that I couldn't agree with.
Now as for plants , besides PO4 . too much light, wrong type of light and
poor nutrients and to much feeding what else causes algae?
 I wish it could be as easy as just a tad bit of algae (Like in nature),
That I could welcome but when it takes over like a relative that won't go
home and covers everything like a woman at a 75% off shoe sale I get rather
pissed. I have to manually scrape the crap off. I'm two steps from dumping
in algae kill, but that kills algae, the good bacteria , fish, plants and
anything else that flies close to the water. I won't add it  but I'm almost
that pissed off about it . I never had this problem before January ,  no big
changes other than getting rid of a Chinese algae eater that broke it's
contract and started attacking the other occupants. It fell to a small
harpoon as I didn't want to tear apart the dang tank trying to "Net" it  .
But all else has stayed the same. Like I said a tiny bit wouldn't bother me
but this is out of control. Mark
James , keep up the good posts:~)
