Ok, I guess I need to check this out further. I was basing my
reactions to the appearance of algae with what I read at
wetwebmedia's faq sheet on algae control -
(Mainly because reading the faq at thekrib -
http://www.thekrib.com/Plants/Algae/balance.html - tends to give me
a headache. <g>)

Since algae also seemed to coincide with increased levels of
nitrate, that seemed to validate what these folks were saying here -
http://www.algone.com/phosphates.htm..  I've never tested for
phosphate, so I guess you'd recommend I add that kit?
