Cool! I've not see the gold ones before. May have to look into those since I'm now in the market for a shrimp.

So I'm about to remove my sand bed. I'm losing this algae battle and I can't figure out why. I'm doing 25% weekly wcs, pulling out the algae, running phosguard, skimming and feeding 2-3 times a week

Wow nice scrimps! Never seen the golden ones, and it's nice that they're reef safe.

Sounds like your sandbed could be the problem, leaching nutrients. Good luck removing it!

Idk if I'm taking it out yet. I did some serious algae removal today and I know I'm upgrading soon enough so I'll just wait

You could just learn to live with the algae like I do! But in all seriousness it is hard to believe you haven't been able to nail down the source of this. From the sand to the rock...how is the feeding of your NPS going? Pretty much shooting in the dark here but it is at least something.

I feed the dendro when I feed the fish. He does fine off of that. Idk I'm almost positive it's the sand. I probably will just live with it until I upgrade
