nutrient deficiencies in algae

how do you tell nutrient deficiencies in algae ?

i'm familiar with freshwater, and many nutrient deficiences include paying attention to the veins in the leaves of plants, ... but algae as a non-vascular plant doesn't have veins.

what resources are there to help identify nutrient deficiences in algae

i don't think there's enough to tell in micro-algae, but macro-algae i'm hoping would provide enough to help identify more.

am searching for answers, but also very open to any input available, ... as this is a search i've never tried before i don't know where to begin, i can only imagine everything is going to point me to freshwater vascular plants :(

really am looking for help identifying nutrient deficiencies in non-vascular plants & algae

I can only think of one, and its not a nutrient....Light.
Where is light, there is algae. More or less.
If still not algae....then you have something toxic.
