Final goodbyes and a few ways to combat algae

This is the first time i have ever blogged and it has really been a great thing doing. This experiment was really fun taking part in. I have some suggestions for getting rid of the algae problem without disturbing the fish to much:

1. do not over feed the fish because that excess food stays in the tank and algae thrive on the nutrients of the generated from uneaten food and fish waste. This is one of the easiest ways to keep algae at bay.

2. increase plant competition, by
The more plants in your aquarium, the less chance algae has of taking over. Plants compete directly with algae for light and nutrients, and most often win if given proper conditions.

Goodbye :(
