    Iv been growing Nepenthes and all other genera of Carnivorous plants since before you were born!
    A know it all is somebody who dose not grow the plant but still think that they know every aspect of it and how to keep it in captivity! (you) take my advice and speak only from your experiances, not somebody elces because each individual has a different experience.
    Atleast thats my definition of it.

    A ph of 6-6.5 will keep the Aldrovanda happy and slow the algae down,put water plants such as lilly pads in the tank to soak up any excess nutrients that cause algae to grow.
    Also put pond snails in the tank and they shall eat the algae.

    Good luck!

    DUDE..............your getting a stalker!

    as for gliders advise, it falls in line with what you just said just a different way of going about it. as to whether it adds extra C02 in amounts to be benificial would require testing but i think the theory is sound. as for algae, as long as its on the side of the tank and not growing on the plant no biggy, infact a good mat of algea on the back glass of a tank will probably starve out free floating algae.

    There is some on the plants, I took it off manually, but it would be nice if something could prevent it from growing there altogether
    in other respects theyre great, and the algae didn't harm them cos it didnt get too bad.

    You don't even need to wait for decomposition- plants create O2 during photosynthesis (the process of making food) but they USE O2 and produce CO2 during respiration (the process of using the food!) So just having a plant underwater will have an effect on the O2 and CO2 levels.

    Welcome to the TF community. I hate to welcome you with reprimand, but this is not an appropriate comment. We hear at terra forums maintain a level of courtast for ALL members, new and veteran, experienced and unexperienced, old and young.

    Alex, as he has expressed he would like to be known as, has done nothing but help and contribute accurate information to the best of his knowledge. We do not appreciate the excessive heckling of members who are simply trying to be helpful in a constructive manner. Alex made no comment with the intent (or possablity at that) of harming any plants, but merely added in a helpful comment about a general biological phenomena. Fact is fact.

    TIG, please be more considerate of all members on this forum and if someone posts incorrect information, then address it in a respectful manner. If you have further problems with a member(s), then feel free to contact a moderator.

    And now we can drop it.

    Good luck with your plants! There appears to be information here as to the control of algae. I can't offer much more than the advice to physically remove what you can see on the plant. A little slime mold could actually do your water ecosystem good! You can always check google for practices which discourage the establishment of algol colonies.

    OOOOKKKK. Enough of that. There will be no more personal attacks in this thread. Everyone here has a right to express their thoughts and ideas. It is everyone's right to consider the advice or ignore it. There is no need for the rude comments.

    The rule of this forum is "BE NICE". Please continue discussing this topic in a respectful manner. If you can't do that, don't post.
