It's much easier with a sump and chaeto. Anyways, I got some saltwater acclimated mollies to help with algae clean up in my sump and eventually display tank:

Interesting that you chose to go with mollies for clean up, why did you go that route?

Simply because they are very effective (and fairly cost effective) algae eaters. I have since moved them to my display tank.

Speaking of algae removal, I tried out Flucanozole for my incessant issues with Hair Algae. Take a look at the Coral Growth Update video above for reference (notice all the ugly gunk on the rocks). After a single dose and no water changes for a month, I did a 20 gallon water change and a week later this was the result:

I can't speak for the amount of algae that the sea hare I had in my tank consumed. I didn't think that I would enjoy having that thing in my tank as much as I did either. It was a real treat to see it out and about doing its job at night. When I had patches of algae, I'd wake up the next day to see a literal path mowed through it.

I considered one, but the nasty gunk that they can put out, plus an invert munching wrasse has put me off of getting one. Flucanozole breaks hair algae and bryopsis down at the cellular level, while leaving coralline algae, Chaeto and other helpful types of algaes alone.

Anyways, here is a growth update on my tiny Zoanthid I got as a freebee on black friday, it has definitely grown and shown full color and is sending out new polyps:

Good point on the wrasse, but at our quantities of water I don't worry about toxins. The solution is always dilution.

Interesting that the deaths came from food rather than the actual process of switching over to salt. It'll be interesting to see how things pan out, but I just never saw mollies as being worth the effort to get them into salt. Thoughts moving forward?
