Is it weird that I want Algae in my tank?
Some of the most beautiful tanks that I have ever seen have some algae in them. I am of course talking about Fresh water tanks with stones, wood, pots with Algae growth. I would kind of like something like this
on my clay pots in my tank.
Right now it seems that my fish are keeping my tank a bit too clean. I am not getting anything like this. I was told that once the tank is "aged, or seasoned" it would get algae growth on the wood and clay pots. Any idea how long that might take? Is there any way to promote certain kinds of algae growth while not allowing others? I know that might seem silly. I don't want the yucky brown algae I see on some tanks glass but this green fringe is sort of pretty. I think it is called Beard algae?
