    Technically all algae are not plants, but protists. Even kelp is not a plant, but a protist. Some algae (like bluegreen) are bacteria, which come would count as not an algae since it is not a protist. The simplest plants are mosses, ferns, etc.

    Another fantastic article - i love this site :)

    Saved me starting a new noob post about the algae in my cold water tank. I've already told my snail to start looking for another job...
    I thought about getting another snail but am put off by horror stories of snails overrunning tanks.

    I also think my tank is at it's max stock level, although I could move the zebra danio's into my tropical tank with the others to make some room for snails. Will the zebras take to the water temperature change after 8 months of being in cold water?

    The new tropical tank will have bristlenoses in it... if i ever find any to buy. Seems to be a shortage in my part of Scotland. Not that i would add them quite yet anyway. The tank is too young and there is no algae for them to eat!
    13 gallon - coldwater with 3 Zebra Danios, 3 White Cloud Minnows, 2 Orandas and an Apple Snail
    30 gallon - 6 Zebra Danios, 2 Bristlenose Plecs, 1 Blue Neon Dwarf Gourami, 1 Female dwarf Gourami, 10 Neon Tetra's and 5 Julii Corys

    Can anyone tell the light spectrum that algae mostly uses?

    For example 1 flo Blue, 1 flo (4500k cool white) ,1 flo groluks 6500k,and 1 flo 10000 K daylight.

    I especially wonder about blue light.

    They produce food via photosynthesis with green pigment, so the ideal kelvin color is about 6500K or so.

    Excellent article Dave. I never minded having some algae in my tanks, I just try to keep it from getting out of control. Also, for those with algae eating fish, it makes little sense to completely eliminate the algae and have to replace this naturally occurring food source with prepared foods. In my hillstream tank, I actually take steps to encourage algae growth as it is their natural food source.
