growin' algae...

I'm setting up a full time algae growing enterprise today to give my otos and hillstreams and SAE an extra treat. I figured out a way to set one up in the "fish closet" right next two my two river tanks. I already have my fish supplies and air pumps hidden away in there. I have several small flat stones and slate that will be innoculated with algae, placed in a couple of plastic containers under a light. Oxygenation of the water using airstones and addition of a very small amount of Miracle Grow now and then should get me a fresh crop of algae, every couple of weeks.
