....and what is its connection with goldfish??

I've seen references to green water on various goldie sites. Is it just free-floating algae? How does it benefit the fish?

It's not something I need to know, it's just been bugging me for a while Rolling Eyes

Its a single celled algae that is suspended in the water, I'm not sure of how it affects goldfish.

I guessed it might be algae, since people occasionally ask about it in their tanks Confused

I've dug up some info about it on various sites; it's all quite interesting in how it relates to goldies.
