fresh water seaweed

We have a FW tank that gets over grown with fresh water seaweed (Subwassertang). Will a Lawnmower Blenny or snails eat it?

Snails might, and could be acclimated to a fw environment, depending on the type. Are you planning on getting a salt water tank to feed your seaweed to?

I have found the best way to cycle your tank! Want to know how? Pee in it. Build thread: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...-141081-3.html Scientific Reading: Reefkeeping

They have a SW tank, just want to get rid of some of the macro from a fw setup. I'll be honest, just pitch what you are trying to get rid of. It isn't worth the effort, even if the algae wouldn't just rot away when put into sw.
