If you have phosphates or an algae issue then I think that its a good deal. If not then it's kind of a waste of money in my opinion.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I got the slime algae going on, but I did cut back on feedings and lighting... Thought this might help out a bit...

Turbo Snails can help a lot too, I have five and they plowed through my cyanobacteria!

I did some changing around in my tanks and slaughtered a ton of them. Should I regret that?

I'm sure you still have some left.They will multiply depending on food availability.It is one of those things if you have to many,you are probably overfeeding,but a few are great as part of cuc.

Thanks for the advice... Also, got new additions. 3 zebra turbos & sand shifting star... I'm into stars lately.. Oh, also the worst happened, the misbar killed the b&w... ... Shoulda seen it coming, but didn't. But now the misbar is starting to host the RBTA... Guess there is a silver lining...
