See NH4/urea issues.

That's why we do not use terrestrial ferts.
Trees do not have algae etc.
Nh4 and urea are great for growing algae cultures.

Re: Grow More Brand "Citrus Soluble Food"

Thats what I thought you would say. However, I have been using a product which is similar, except has no micro's in it for a while in an outdoor pond I maintain where I am growing java moss, and a few species of Echinodorous, the pond has never really had an algae problem.

Is bright light what is triggering the algae blooms in aquariums with high
NH4/urea?

cause my pond is pretty dark, and like I said, virtually devoid of algae.

thanks, Andrew
