    Best-Of Alge Removal Pics Thread?

    Hey I was wondering if there's a thread documenting the best algae removal stories w/ pics?

    I love all the swamp-to-oasis stories that have pics, but I've only been on the site for a few weeks, so I'm sure there are ton of great ones from years past.

    I don't think there is, but that would be interesting to have a summary thread/sticky with a few pix and a link to the original thread.

    But who had the time to do the leg work of creating it, when everyone is trying to turn their swamps into pools?

    Maybe just use this thread a "directory" of sorts? Here's my story:

    I started doing exactly what you are asking about last year, but it became too much work.

    Easiest way to find the good ones is to look for a post that runs into the double digits on pages AND has pictures attached.

    I don't suppose you saved any of what you found from then?
