So....what are we trying to accomplish here? Isn't the problem hair algae? Did you google it? The Kent Tech-M has worked for many people.

I want to get rid of the hair algae.. But I just dropped 150$ in a clean up crew.. I don't want to just throw the money away.. What should I do?? Stop water changes and raise mag not worry about the clean up crew? I could put everything that comes in . In a different tank.. Or do you think they will be ok? I did just notice today. My ro/di filters and resin is less than 2 months old and my hanna po4 checker read 100. Di was still blue too. Which is upsetting... But changed it out . Now it's back to 10 after I ran a few gallons they

Well, I realize it's a bit late, but I gave you a solution to your HA issue, and then you spent 150 bucks on snails and crabs. My question would be, why? You are just going to have a snail and crab filled hair algae garden.
Give a chance for the Kent product to work. If you get no results, then you can toss in a thousand critters to live in it.

Ya. I wasn't thinking.. Lol. I may just throw them in a bare 20g tank for a few weeks til I get this figured out. It looks like what was in there is slowly disappearing now.. Keeping my fingers crossed!!
