I am trying to grow the sweetwater algea Chara globularis and have some 
problems with it.
I grow it in a tank with 16 h light in tap water supplemented with 36 
mg/litre sodium carbonate, 23 mg/litre calcium chloride and 50 mg/litre 
magnesium sulphate. It seems like the algea is not growing very good so 
if someone has experience with this please e-mail me or post here.

 the mightiest conceivable, and then when it by-and-by
 gets into selfish hands, as it is always bound to do,  
 it means death to human liberty,and paralysis to human thought"
