@QDanT Calling QDant! This guy should know a few answers to your questions, i believe he grows his own.
you should have added the word Algae ! I don't want a knock on the door at 04:00 !
Just how I do it, but it seems to work, 2 gallon tank on south facing window sill filled with fresh water from the 70 gallon Front room Amano Shrimp tank, water change, then added a few drops of 'baby bio' plant food for more Nitrate seeded with a small scrape of Algae from the Amano tank less than a week for Algae to start growing on tank sides
cut some pieces of scrap glass drilled a hole in hung from a stick above the tank with string
I also hung a Limestone rock in, when this had Algae growing on it, about a week, I transfered it to a jar of SG 1.010 RO Water on the windowsill for my upstairs Opae ula tank
I don't think Algae self seeds in brackish water but continues to grow when added, here's the jar today I might add another piece of Limestone rock
the pieces of glass are for one at a time into the Amano shrimp tank
not knowing any thing this is just how I did it
