A Penny For Your Thoughts

I was reading in a magazine last night that you can keep algae from growing in your birdbath if you put a few pre-1982 pennies in it. It said that the high copper content "retards growth."
What say ye?

Worth a try. Let me know if it works. A little bleach works

Well now, I've not heard of that, but heck, it might be worth a try! :c)

I did find some articles that talk about copper killing algae! Copper is used in swimming pools and ponds to keep them algae free! wow!
