New 90 gallon

Can anyone recommend a good website to buy a cleanup crew. Also could anyone recommend a cleanup crew for 90 gallon aqaurium with 100lbs live rock and lots of hair algae?

What do you want it to clean? New tanks usually don't have much to clean. Make sure it is cycled first too.

Well I bought it used and it was already cycled for 2 years. However some of live rock already had some green sea grass looking algae. It's a lot of work to get it off myself and wanted to know the best way to get rid of it.

If you have a lot of hair algae. You might wanna pull the rocks and scrub them down in some of the old salt water when you do a water change. You might also wanna invest in a "sea hair" my understanding is they mow through hair algae like its nothing. However, once it's cleaned your tank if there's no algae they will slowly starve to death. You could return them to the LFS or pass them on to a friend who is also having hair algae problems.

You could also invest in a phosban reactor with some good GFO. I use Dr Gs, and it seems to do fairly well. I had a lot of hair algae and I'm down to about two spots that are about the size of two golf balls.

My issue is algae "dust" on my glass and my substrate. Still trying to figure that one out.

If I buy a seahare, is there a risk of it harming my fish. I have a maroon clown, ocelaris clown, fire fish, cardinal, two chromis and a goby. I have lots of green hair algae.

I meant the toxins it releases. I have a wet dry filter with a basic protein skimmer?

They are extremely hard to keep alive and are sensitive to changeing water conditions so drip it for 3-4 hours and give it back to the lfs after its done its job

Ok great thanks a lot. I'm sure it would be a while before it did its job because I have a lot of algae but thank you very much.
