    Steve, you are correct. We had some rather large water holding tanks (white) that we had to paint to keep the algae bloom down. We still had to add Zerotol to the tanks to keep it under control, but our tanks were as I recall around 1000gal for back up when our well went down in the nursery.

    the paint seems to be a great idea! we have left over dark brown paint outdoor paint from last year, when we repainted the outside trim of the entire house!
