In Response To: Black brush algae WITH serious water flow. (Martin Thoene)

Well, I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only heathen fish keeper out there. After all the comments about my algea problem, I was curious so I dug out the test kit that I haven't used in probably three years and tested my water. Everything came out pretty much as I expected. My water is still hard and has a pH of 7.4 - 7.6. It did show some nitrAte, but that will happen when my last water change was a week previous to testing. After freaking out all the time when I was new to the hobby, I decided to take a much more laid back approach to fish keeping. Reseach you fish's needs, try to provide them, and perform regular maintenance. Otherwise, sh*t happens. GO HEATHENS!!!
