Oooooo. I don't know about that one Ray. Again, I don't have any data or
anything but intuition to back myself up with, but I wouldn't. The only red
"algaes" that I've ever known in closed systems to be beneficial (read: not
harmful) to any vertebrate are either fibrous or macro-colonial and don't tend
to stay suspended in the water column :)

That snail trick is very interesting. I'm not familiar with that, nor would I
have considered it. What are you feeding the snails, and what species of
snails have you found to work the best?

Are these safe to feed to fry as green water? If so, I will keep them going,
other wise they go out on the lawn.

Thanks for the info guys,
