Hi all! Thought we should start a new thread on this discussion as the other is taking so long to load.

Just a big "heads up" for all of you asking and/or having problems with algae. In the Sept. 2001 "Aquarium Fish" magazine, there is a very good, in depth article entitled "A is for Algae". It describes the different types and tells you many different ways to get in under control, even to the point of giving you species of fish that will eat the certain kinds. Good article for those who can obtain a copy. For those that can't get one, let me know, and I will try to summarize the article for you.

Another "very interesting" article concerns testing the water. Finally, there is someone out there with "my" point of view on this subject.

Thanks KICK,

Is that magazine available now for purchase? And where can you get it?

Claude, most of the LPS's carry it. Sometimes you can find it at some Walmarts. It is a very good magazine and really worth subscribing to. Are you in the states? Let me know, and I can send you an insert where you can sign up for subscription.

Thanks for the offer..... Im going to check at Petsmart today or tommorow... if they dont have it, then Ill email you with my address. Barnes and Noble are also next door so Im sure if Petsmart dont have it, they will.

I agree it was a great article. I'm glad I subscibe to the magazine(subscription rate is pretty inexpensive). I always wonder why they send it out two months in advance?? Tropical fish magazine is usually pretty good too, but it is more expensive and not as available in the LPS stores.
