Is it a reef? Some species are not reef safe... Research the type you get or post a pic on here and someone will know what type it is, good luck

Yes. It only has a few zoos and a ricordea mushroom. I purchased it used off of craigslist and it came with many fish and there was already some hair algae on the 100 lbs of live rock included. It looks like this and it is spreading throughout my tank

They can nuke your tank if they get stressed Saltwater Aquarium Invertebrates for Marine Reef Aquariums: Sea Hare Sea Slug Your better off with snails and hermits go to reefcleaners.org and look at the pics there then you can order what you'll need for a safe CUC. If the algae is spreading it's a nutirent problem your getting nitrates from somewhere

I agree with ordering from reef cleaners. They are the best if you need a CUC.

I would have said a lawnmower to but that maroon clown can be tough on any new fish

The maroon clown is very friendly. He only seems to really go after a fish when there i give them good. Other than that he minds his own business. There is a goby and he usually leaves it alone. I was trying to get a lawnmower blenny but I don't know if my lfs has them and shipping online is so expensive.

I have a lawn mower blenny. He won't eat that algae it's to long. A lot of these guys won't eat it after it's gotten to long. If your not going with a sea hair, your best to scrub it off in a bucket of salt water. And use a cleaning crew to keep it in check after a good hard scrubbing. That's what I did.
