    Question on mustard algea

    I know when you brush it away, it will poof up in a small cloud, but will algea allow you sweep it really slow into a pile? Or should it fall apart regardless? My readings are still perfect, so wondering if it might just be pollen...

    No, you cannot sweep it up. It will simply disappear only to reappear later in the same area.

    I went out there when I got home from work, and was able to sweep it really slow into long thin line, so now im wondering if its not algea, but it does back in the same spots...

    Perform an OCLT, that'll give you a good answer.
