thank you! that has happened, i have had brown algae for a week or so, i am now noticing green algea on the rocks and some of the stringy plant life growing on the rocks as well, i still am getting brown algea though so I think i need to add some snails and more hermit crabs.. or is there a better type of crab than hermit?

Definitely add some snails. See my post from a couple days ago here...

A week ago I was in the same boat as you. Green beard algae (which wasn't bad looking... kinda cool in spots) was starting to overtake the diatoms in spots. Added the snails and everything is back pristine as can be.

i just added three snails and four more hermit crabs bringing the total to 9 crabs and 3 snails in a 14 gallon tank... we'll see how they do! one of the snails is more interested in attaching itself to the shell of one of the crabs right now it seems though..
