    Ok, so here's my entry to the competition...

    Unfortunately I don't have any pics of it any more seeing a it happened in my 1st 1.5m tank I had when I was still staying in East London.

    I used to do water changes with sea water collected from my spot in East London, and never had any issues. One day however I used a different spot, and shortly after the water change, I had a major algae bloom. I also did top ups directly from the tap seeing as it was borehole water without any chlorine.

    I was forced to at this point to get an RO system, and with that I did some major water changes over the course of a month and a half. And boom, it stopped the bloom very quickly.

    Currently I have no RO unit any more, so I will definately be able to make god use of this prize.
