i would not bother with the snails and focus instead on keeping nutrients at a minimum. this will inhibit algae growth.

True 'dat!

I think that advice by Mr X can easily help folks develop a response to a lot of tank problems, cyano, algae, ph issues, etc. That is, finding and correcting the source of the problem and not relying totally on critters or chemicals to fix it.

it's definitely excessive nutrients, whether it's from overfeeding, not enough nutrient export, or both, if you figure that out and adjust/address it, the algae bloom will subside.

Couple of things. Are you using a skimmer? Nitrate readings?

Check your calcium lvl. with low calcium the turbos don't do much.
