Benthic diatoms will have no use to anything except maybe snails. Pelagic diatoms (phytoplankton) are worth culturing if you have something that eats them but it's extremely time consuming.

just wonder why you say no fishmonger....i was actually thinking snails eat them and hopefuly asteria,and a type of spegetti worm except it only has 2 whips.im really not concerned about green algae.i dont want cyano or green hair but green smooth is something i need for mainly the asteria.
