Another good book about algae you can find here….
Learn how to Grow Algae at Home immediately for Biofuels, Health Food Supplements, Animal Feed and Organic Fertilizer.
There has been an increased interest from people at home, teachers and students about producing a small, inexpensive guide for those who want to grow algae cultures.
There seem to be a few of books for the more advanced student or worker, but very few for inexperienced people. This book bridges that gap and has been written for those who have little experience.
To be successful in growing algae cultures, you must have patience. Also you need to exercise care, have some skill, not to mention having some luck! The best advice we can give you to grow algae at home, is not to try and “build Rome in a day.” Just begin at a small scale, and keep it as simple. Make one change at a time and observe results. You aren’t in a race, or a sprint…this is really more like a marathon. Above all else, take good notes so you can compare your work as you go and then you will know what works.
