The fight with hair algae!!!! I have never come across anything more stubborn and persistant as green hair algae. Took almost a year to get a handle on it and now I try to keep some going on purpose for my lawnmower blenny. He does a great job of keeping everything cleaned up. Sometimes a little too good and he runs out of algae to eat , so out comes the seaweed strips at that point.

My 2 year old lawnmower blenny will not even look at hair algae or algae sheets, your lucky in that regard. He eats more meaty foods than algae i would wager.

as soon as they go under that rock, they dont come back out, my only guess is my pistol shrimp is trigger happy

also, i HATE these god forsaken test kits, everything is so hard to read except nitrite and ph

I have had 2 gobys die too. No idea why. One jumped out and one ended up in my sump somehow...

My biggest challenge to overcome was me. I use to buy reef inhabinates based on my desires, rather than what would work in my existing system, with the amount of time I have to give it. Now that many sponges, gorgonians and other extremely difficult species have long been flushed, I have myself under control. I know what to buy and what not to buy.
