My starry blenny seems to be eating and coming out now but only eats the algae off my rocks like 3-5 seconds at a time... Normal or still adjusting?

I've been battling a tough one with hair algae so I bought 4more troucus(spelling) snails and have been cutting it and siphoning it with water changes. I also just started cutting my lights back 2hrs.... If I run carbon would that help also?

ehh don't stress it too much. let the CUC take care of it. your tank is brand new, you're going to be battling different types of algae for months. I wouldn't try running GFO or carbon just yet. if you're going to end up using it anyways and you feel like setting it up, go for it. but don't do it to try to kill this HA problem. it's just a new tank

I'm seeing little white bugs all over my glass. Too small to "actually" see but I see them running on the glass when my moons are on.

Are these the pods mandarins eat?
