Also forgot to mention about the algae that started a while back, you need to remove from the water to get rid of it, but i stopped scrubbing one rock and let it grow. Its getting fairly long on it and the rest of the tank is taking several days to get a build up. I just went four days with only a small buildup on the glass. In another week or so i take out the rock and hopefully "remove" the problem

Well, so far this algae on one rock is doing great! My wife says to me, umm... Did you know that algae is really long over here!
yes, yes I did, thank you for noticing, did you notice its hardly growing anywhere else?
Should it be like that long though?

Couple morr days pull it out and see if it helps. Also my replacement replacement snails are still alive! But i think my aggrssive crab has been in hiding for a few days so well see if they fare better. I really need to get him out, but i havent had time to tear it all down.
