Things I have tried to get rid of the green stuff:
Clean up crew:
(6) Emerald Crabs
(6) Turbo Snails (Large)
(6) Hermit Crabs (Small) - they killed the snails
Algae remover from some company that claims it will kill algae in 12 hrs or less.
I have tried scrubbing the algae off the rocks, thats a waste of time it keeps coming back.
I bought the media reactors, as some people stated in forums that it will remove the phosphates , then eliminating algae.
BTW, the algae has only been present for the last 4 months, before that it was never there. Tank is 2 years old.
Everything is normal with the other settings in tank, please help.
