So do I...I don't know if it ends, but as long as you keep up with it, it only takes a couple minutes.

Like he says try a clean of crew of snails and crabs. If it is on the rock get a lawn mower blenny, but they do extricate alot.

I have a turbo snail and it seems to defecate all of the time. Is there anything to take care of this?

Sorry that this is a bit off topic. I got the snail to eat my brown algae.

With the tanks I've started the brown has gone away on its own. My current tank is about 9 months old and I dont spend much more than 10 minutes a week cleaning the glass.

Maybe my nitrates are so high that the algae cant live

Tropical abalones do a great job. Put one on each pane of glass. Plus they're pretty cool looking.
