Dennis,

That sudden appearance of bluegreen algae wasn't due to any growth spurt, but due to its climbing out on top of the gravel the day the lights were out. It was there before, but mostly hidden under the gravel. BGA is mobile. The long strands can crawl about. I get rid of it with long dark periods combined with ramshorn snails and guppies. After it has been in the dark for a week or so, it becomes more edible, and the snails and the fish will go to work on it.
