    "Does EI + ADA's aqua soil work well?"

    A beautiful picture!

    But - and don't take offence - isn't that like showing a picture of a healthy, happy baby with the caption, "We feed him Heinz baby food", or one of a beautiful woman surrounded by studs, captioned "I'm so glad I use Ban deodorant!"?

    I think it would be more useful if you compared the results of different substrate-fertilizer-lighting regimens rather than show what happened with just one of them.

    Not really, many do this and I agree, but many fall for it.

    But since you asked:

    Good, and thanks!

    You can grow beautiful plants on anything using anything. If you could only grow algae consistenly like most of us can, you would be without a peer.

    Good fortune.

    I can grow algae without equal.
    How do you think I know what causes the specific species and how to induce them? :D

    Also, try this one for size about growing algae:
    Nothing like a little marine action:

    LOL.

    Marine algae is different, like hair algae is.

    I'm sure you can grow algae if you work at it, but many of us can do it naturally without a lot of effort, even as a byproduct of growing plants. We have that gift; you don't. You have others.
