Default Farming Algae

I am building and testing an algae "scrubber" and thought I'd keep a record.

I think it has been about 12 days since I set up the ATS for my 80 gallon freshwater tank. I harvested one of the 6 pads today and got a good sized pile of mixed algae. Maybe 4 - 6 grams wet. I mixed it with a little top quality fish food, water and agar in a pot on the stove top. It made about 4 days worth of gel food for my goldfish.

I was a bit surprised to see algae growing on the glass again after cleaning it at the start. I was hoping it would not grow there anymore.

Goldfish are among the worst fish for beginners.
