I have some red algae growing in my 10 gal qt
/fry tank and I was discussing what would be a good algae eater for that tank with the guy at my lfs
. He said that some red algae can be toxic to shrimp and possibly fish. Has he been smoking red algae or is this a real problem? My algae is dark red and grows in furry clumps (like little tribbles). Also, what would you recommend for eating algae in a smaller tank? Plecos and chinese algae eaters seem to eat all the algae too fast and then you have to feed them.
