Thats a good little article. The funny part is, he's absolutely right!! Nothing can balance out nature like nature itself, That was refreshing.

He is absolutely correct... my tank went throught a horrible phase of algae growth, and it finally ended with water changes, but the thing is the plants take a long time to get situated, so the algae takes hold, but once the plants get situated, they outcompete the algae.
