Good CUC...?

I was wondering what a good size CUC would be for my 75 gallon? I only have a Turbo snail. I'm not sure my African red star counts...

Have you checked reefcleaners? They have cleaning crew packs based on size of tank. for a 75 I would recommend the 40g cleaning pack or around there. reefcleaners gives a TON of cuc in their packs.

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

I'll have to check that out, cause I'm sure it would help my tank.

You can usually get a crew for under $30 and like I said, they def. overload their crews. I have like a 100 snails now it seems lol

Will adding that many things at once throw my tank into a water condition frenzy?

Ok. I'm hoping between the new RO/DI filter, and adding a decent CUC, it will help with my algae issue.

Send a message via AIM to hackteck
if you were using tap water before and your going to be using ro/di water it will definately help

I agree with Carey. Go a little smaller on the CUC from reefcleaners. They really take care of you, plus if you live in FL you get free shipping on orders more than $25!!

It will take some time to get rid of the remains of tap water in your tank but the algae shouldn't get worse. I'm just now getting my phosphates down to .50 after using tap water for the first month of my tank.
