I'm glad somebody else finally said it. This type of information is not helpful to a newbie looking for advice. Times have changed and so has ones way of thinking when it comes to this hobby. Just as the "wpg rule" this talk that excess nutrients is the cause of any algae you get is flat out wrong. There are many variables that can cause an algae outbreak but the first thing to focus on is the growth of your plants. People focus more about keeping algae away when their focus should be on growing healthy plants. Happy healthy plants= healthy algae free tank.
