    Does anyone have any decent photos of algae - close-ups or tanks riddled with it, please?

    In particular I'd like BGA and BBA. A 'nice' aquascape with obvious algae would be great too.

    Post 800 x 500ish pixel shots on here and I'll PM you if I can use them.

    The originals need to be high quality jpegs, preferbly over 2000x1500 pixels or so, but will consider smaller images.

    If your images are featured I will send you a copy of the PFK that they'll be used in and you'll be credited with the photo(s).

    We'll be credited, but will we retain copyright, George?

    And will the images be abused once submitted? ie, used again and again by PFK without notice?

    I've a small amount of Cladophora I think... could try and get some pics of it later.

    Yes.

    No, they won't be 'abused', or used again without notice.

    Thanks. That would be appreciated, if you did.

    I have every type of algae I can think of, so you're welcome to bring the camera round mine for the evening!

    Thanks, guys.

    I can't view any images right now but will get back to relevant members when I can.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I have induced most forms of algae myself in my 60cm over the last week so I'll be using that for photos before I do the stripdown.

    Amazing what double lighting, no CO2 or other nutrients can do over a few days... It proves a few points for my next article too.

    I am still very interested in BBA (black beard/brush algae) shots though, please. Deadline is Sun 15th Feb.

    Hi George,

    How about the very rare "my flatmate was left in charge of feeding the fish for two weeks while i was at a music festival in Serbia" algae?

    I no longer require any photos, but it's great to see these anyway!
