How can I speed up algae growth?
While people are complaining about having it..I am going to complain about not having enough.. okay my current experiment..I bought about 10 small pieces of PVC pipe and I am in the process of trying to grow algae on them and then I will move them to my tank for my RCS and Nerites to play and eat on. Currently they are sitting outside in a plastic container in direct sunlight everyday for about a month now and I have not any sign of algae..so last night I figured I should add something to the container that already has the spores. So I added a piece of algae covered cuttlebone to the PVC container. I will continue to be patient but does anyone have any other suggestions? Should I add plant food or something. I can't believe I am having this problem..seems to grow in my puppies pool just fine.

I have a couple of clay pots in my tank and I shine a clip light on them a few hours a day. They get algae and they act as a feeding station for my snails, Oto's and Rainbow shark. They all come to the pots for a snack. They are just in my normal tank though and they get Flourish 2 times a week. Well, the plants do but they are in the water. lol

Red- MG is a good idea..didn't think of it.
Thank you all for your help!
