>I am starting a 125 gal tank and currently have no light for it.  There
are filters, water, bacteria, rock, logs and that's it.  I noticed last
night that there is algae growing on a part of a log that is out of water.
>I was suprised since there is no fish, food, very little light, etc.  The
only thing I can think of is that there was enough bacteria on a filter pad
I took from an established tank to start the algae.
>What I am trying to figure out is where did the algae come from?  Should I
be concerned?
