You may have found the ticket right there.... algae, hmmmmm. I presume
that this is your outdoor pond? Sunlight, algae and all..... Sounds like a
good recipe. Anyone try feeding nori to their hog suckers?

Seems like a year or two ago, someone mentioned they went to streams and
collected algae covered rocks to put in their darter aquarium. I didn't
follow up at the time, but it sounded like it might be a good nutritional
supplement. Anyone else do this or want to make comments on the logic?
