What is the best way to keep my sand in mt 75G FOWLR
looking always clean?
Here are some photos when I first added my sand.
In the last 6 months or so, I have had some spectacular Coraline purple and pink algae growth on the rocks which is great. My issue is that it spreads lightly over to the sand by the time I do my water change every 2 weeks or so, kind of pinkish. I stir up my sand to make it clean and bury the top layer, or add a new bag here and there. I try to suck up the algae growing over the sand when I do water changes too, but really its not as clean as it used to.
By the way its not cyano
, I checked with lots of people, its just the algae has grown so well in my tank a little bit makes it over the sand as well i guess, if I dont do water changes as frequent as I should. Used to do them every week, now more like every 2 weeks.
I used to have some snails but most of them have been eaten by the crabs
I assume I should buy a ton of snails to help clean up? or some kind of sand sifting sea star, I have heard of those. Any advice? Any particular snails I should use? Thanks.
