Low PH promote algae growth?

Is there anything written on this?

Can a low pH or Calc/Alk/Mag cause a bloom of diatom or dinos?

My dosing unit failed while i was away for my 2 week hitch at work. Came home, and I haven't had an algae bloom in months.

All other parameters are fine, but tank wasn't being dosed for the better part of 10 days or so. pH 7.7. Calcium was around 330. I didn't test Alk or Mag yet. I'm sure they are down though. Nitrate less than 5. Phos .03 (Pretty steady numbers for months now.). Salinity 1.025.

Tank is all out of whack. =(
