Wink Most horrific algae contest - Congratulations Zapins!

A few months ago, someone started an informal contest about finding the tank in the worst need of a trim. It got me thinking.......

I've managed some impressive-looking algae from time to time and I'm sure that I'm not the only one.

So break out the cameras and show everyone what a real alage attack looks like. Just promise me you won't go inducing one. I couldn't handle the guilt.

If it makes it any more interesting, I'll volunteer a nice plant assortment with free shipping to the winner.

Blah...I hate to think of the worst algae invasion I ever had. The whole tank was covered with brown algae, BBA, and others I can't remember. It was so bad that I didn't want photograph it (so I would never be reminded of it).

Anyways, good luck with the contest!

Yours is also horrible. Thanks. I took the shot in a period while I was combating. I used PMDD formula and the algae disappeared in one or two month and it did not come back.
