does it have to be in tanks? I'm starting up a new algae farm in a tupperware container and could get you all the picks you want of that. Also, how bout diatoms? Could get a good pic of some of those too.

All algea pictures are more than appriciated. Even if they are from your pool, you bathroom or somewhere else. Pictures from your algae farm would be great.

Diatoms sounds good as well.

Here's some chaeto and another macro algae (the chaeto looks like a green brillo pad in the upper right corner, I can't remember the name of the other one, but someone else might know) Both are very beneficial nitrate and phosphate sponges in a reef
