RE: Green water

Hello Michael,

Spring and Fall algal blooms are a known phenomenon in nature. It is not
too farfetched that they also happen in aquaria.

Does exposure to daylight matter, or do algae have an internal clock?
Mussels do: They will open and shut in synchronization with tides of
their place of origin, despite living in an aquarium in, say, Kansas!

We could dismiss this as "someone writes about it and others come out of
woodwork to comment" or it just might be something interesting - like a
seasonal phenomenon (I'll go back through the archives and check on the
dates of other reports) - or even a conspiracy of the "wee green
from hell".
