Emerald crab--going back!
I got an emerald crab the other day to help with the hair algae problem in my Qt
. There's a piece of LR
in there (I'll move it to the display when the current fish go in) and the crab settled on the rock and started shoveling algae into his mouth as fast as his pinchers would go. Problem is, after three days he's cleaned off almost all the little sponges as well, and just now I realized he's taking off the coraline algae, too--he just spits it out in little flakes! Add to that the copious amounts of poop he makes and that's it. I'm trading him for a turbo snail. Too bad, 'cause he's a cute little guy.
