Default Cyanobacteria... Spirulina.

I'm still having a problem with cyanobacteria. Only in one tank, though. Unfortunately, it's my newest setup (since late Nov.) I've written about it elsewhere, so won't get into here.

Very shortly after setting up this tank, after it completed its cycling, I added some Hawaiian Red Shrimp (Opae Ula) yeah, them again! There were several larval shrimp in the population, so like a good daddy I fed them Spirulina powder, like recommended.

My question (not an easy answer, I'm guessing)...

Is it possible, under specific circumstances for this product to seed an aquarium? Spirulina is a cyanobacteria, a "blue green algae".

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!
