Algae eaters / Hermits and snails
Posted 20 January 2009 - 10:21 PM
I've had a bit of hair algae get a grip in my tank, after I think it came in my tank on some Zoas.
Its spreading, and I think I'm under stocked on Hermits and Snails.....
Do you have anything they can recommend to munch through it?
I believe True Mexicans are the best to tackle this, but nobody seems to have them in stock.
Please let me know what you have in, along with prices etc... If you don't have the mexicans, let me know what you have. Any Blue knuckles, or dwarf hermits?
Can you let me know prices?

Any Sponsors got any?
Lower your phosphate and nitrate. I would say its more than likely not hair algae. if i came in on a coral. Also keeping a stable KH can slow down hair algae growth. There are more effective control methods than snails and hermits to help you. Can you post a full spectrum test of your water test? PH, KH, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphate, Nitrate etc. Do you have a skimmer? How old is the tank?
