Hair algae solution

My friend told me that a molly would clean up green hair algae. I also heard a lettuce nudibranch would clean it up as well, any ideas?

All those getting fish and inverts are only a bandaid solution. You need to find the reason why and stop the fuel source. Here is a good start.

I agree, if you don't nip it in the bud, you will continue to has the same issues.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
