My emerald crab loves all types of algae, including bubble! I had some hair algae on a frag I bought and the smaller hermits ate it in a day. I think they're called red Scarlets.

Oh trust me! Youll get TONS of photos!!!
Since tomorrow is an easy day, i am going to fo the water change today and get some cuc if possible.

If we make the ro water at 1:15, and add the salt probably an hour later when the ro is done, how long do we need to mix it for?

Hi i shall look forward to seeing the photo's I always just waited for the water to clear and hardly any residue on the base of the bucket? Some salt mixes are better than others,but if the water is clear then it should be ok to use
Footnote :- good luck in the ping pong tourney

Get 5 hermit crabs, 5 nerite snails, and 1 turbo snail, and an emerald crab. Trust me, they have a low bio-load. The snails and crabs have the algae in your tank to eat.
