Good way to create a myth

Even in Dupla's Optimum aquarium, while they give such data for natural systems, they also make a clear point it is impractical to continuously exchange the water and dose small amounts. And the fact of the matter is that it does not help to set things up and do so.

Swimming down the Ichetcuknee river, with a Tier 1 Spring flow, plants abound, but so does algae.

What controls the algae?
Mostly three things: light, light and light.

So even the best systems will have algae, it's just like nature though, to have a specific garden, you need to weed and select out what you like and dislike while nature tries to add it back again.
