Nick (and anyone else who might know):

I visited the Shedd aquarium on Wednesday, and, of course, their freshwater
tanks were practically algae free. In the public aquarium world, is algae
normally controlled by regular physical scrubbings, or is it kept from ever
_starting_ by maintaining specific water conditions? ...or is there some
other magical trick?

Thanks fo' sharin' yo' expertise.
