Emersed setup and BGA?

This is a new topic for me to ask about on TPT, but I've had little fish bowls setup with potting soil all over the house holding various sorts of emersed plants. I have noticed one in particular is gets BGA on the side of the glass. The plants are really healthy looking and growing fast, and no signs of deficiency. Should I be worried or is this a normal occurrence?

Very normal. A lot of rice fields depend on BGA to grow before planting because they're a good source of nitrogen. This was before they used fertilizers.

Interesting. Got any links handy? I'm off to google land. It's kind of cool looking. If I can remember, I'll take a picture of this particular setup. I had all these fish bowls floating around and thought what could be better than to create some emersed setups?

Here was my little emersed bowl setup.



I had BGA in the beginning too but the plants took over and blocked out all of the light.
It is no more since the dirt ran out of nutrients and I ran out of window space.
