Scopas Tang -- love that fish. Makes so much nuisance algae disappear. I have had Starry Night and Lawnmower Blenny before, but the Scopas is a gentler fish, with a bigger appetite and maybe even better eyes for seeking out green algaes to gobble up. When I see people with green hair algae complaining about it, I think to myself "My Scopas tang would love that for a treat, and that would only be a couple of weeks worth."
reactor -- If you have cyano
, my advice is skip turning off the lights, skip the cyano
ridding chemical and get a simple GFO
reactor. Got my Two Fishes reactor for about 30 dollars, already had an old pump from my skimmer, and bought some cheap bulk GFO
off of Amazon. My rocks are no longer covered, my corals are clean, sometimes I still get a little on the sand at the bottom of the tank, but I just vaccum it up when I do my PWC
