Hello TPF gang! New to forum! Such a great place!
We have 20 year marcite that has been a breeze to keep up and now considering Stonescape’s Caribbean Blue mini pebble finish. I wonder what kinds of changes to expect in chemistry needs? Will the darker color cause the water to be warm and easier alge blooms? ( very rare occurance currently) We live in west central Florida, pool has east/west exposure with small parts of the pool in shade on and off during the day.
Also, anyone experience with this color? Thank you!

Color/Temp should make no difference in algae formation in a properly maintained pool. If your FC is appropriate for CYA level, there is no chance for algae growth.
