Water sampled from the Manukau oxidation ponds between Dec. 6, 1973 and July 12, 1974 was tested for its ability to support blue green algal growth. A local blue green algal isolate of Anabaena grew well on membrane filtered pond water throughout the year, however the unfiltered water sustained Anabaena only when the resident green algal populations, in particular Chlorella, were low. Temperature and pH optima for growth of Anabaena and the Manukau pond algal dominant, Chlorella, were significantly different: 28-35.degree. C and pH 9-10 and 23-28.degree. C and pH 7-8 respectively. The ambient conditions of the ponds favoured growth of Chlorella over blue green algae during the period of study.
