Hey all,

I have just recently come across a problem in my tank. I think i have cyanobacteria. It is purple in color and is producing bubbles underneath the film. It was originally on my maxi-jet, but now it has escalated to the glass. Are there any snails that consume cyano?

No snail or crabs eat it like we want... I had astrea snails that seemed to eat it but at a slow rate when there was better algae to eat on the glass. Ans this was on the glass only, nothing toughed it on the sand.
check the general fourm for tons of posts on cyno..
