Whats a good caretaker of Hair Algae?

Have a real bad case of hair algae in my tank, and am looking to add something to take care of it.


However, I want something that will be compatable with my future plans of corals and be compatable with my Watchmans Goby, and will take to prepared foods well.


Any suggestions?

Tangs, blue leg hermits, snails, emerald crabs all have done a very good job on mine. Manual removal is also a way to get rid of it. using a toothbrush, IME removing the rock seems to be the best otherwise i have just found that it spreads more. HTH

Tank is only 29gal

Was hoping for a small fishy, Something to add to the tank...since the tank only has the Watchmen in it, It gets kinda boring watching him sit under a rock all day and beg for food :p

you should still be able to put an emerald crab, or a sally...both work fine in my tank. What are your nitrate levels?
