To all,

       Thanks first of all to Chris T. for his fantastically detailed and
clear explanation on the effects of barley straw over algae. Answering Chris
F.'s questions, I think it may truly be good for Utrics, Aldrovanda and
maybe other CPs too. I remember in Japan seeing Aldrovanda cultivated in
tanks where they had placed bundles of rice straw, which (I believe) they
claimed turned the water tea-colored and acid while it decomposed (and I
guess kept the algae out too).

Best Wishes,
