You would have to actually test that out seeing as algae grows differently in different water, lighting and environment. Your best bet is to just give it a try yourself.

What about testing the memory of fish. See if you can "train" them so to speak. I read an article today about a guy who trained one of his fish to carry a small frisbee across a 6' tank. Use food as a stimulus and see what kind of things you can teach a fish to do. Or maybe have a few small fish and see which ones learn the best. The whole pavlov's dog experiment.

You know that month long waiting period you are supposed to wait before adding a fish to a tank. Thats called a Nitrogen cycle.
