I would like to see the response, let us know how this works out.

I have algae in some cool water tanks, but it sure could be that some species of algae grow better at certain temperatures.

Only change your water temp by 2 degrees per day to not stress your livestock. It can be too much of a shock for some less resilient varieties of fish and plants. At least that's what I've heard :) makes sense anyway
