I feel that these two types may be responsible for the different experiences people have with them. perhaps we should do a survey about these, since I have no research whatsoever to back up what I'm saying.
OK poll time I talked to the guy at the LFS and we both think that it would be very rare for it to happen. I guess there is always the chance but.


Pics and specs coming soon...

Mine has never bothered any of my fish, even if a fish is bothering it. It does, however, seem to exclusively prefer coralline algae over bubble or hair algae. Go figure. Luckily that stuff grows back pretty quick.
