Hair algae gone????
Well, it seems that the tank took care of itself. The hair algae I had growing amidst the polyp community dissapeared overnight. But wait, I just looked over to the tank and low and behold there is none of my giant hermit crabs straddling it. He is eating the hair algae, he is actually pushing the polyps aside and going for the algae, stripping it right down to the rock, amazing. Whos says nature doesn't take care of itself. I cut back on the feedings and I guess that is what did it, they were made hungry enought to forage for food. The other things I have growing in my tank are what I believe to be "ptasia"(not sure on the spelling). They are quite small right now and have sriped in the tentacles, white and brownish orange. They look pretty, but someone said that they are BAD, should I remove them?? I hate to kill anything that grows naturally in a tank, unless something eats it naturally, I don't like to intervene in the natural selection process.
Don't tap on the glass, the fish will think you are stupid!!
