new member...with reef problems
- Hello, my name if Tina. I live in Oklahoma.
I have been on other yahoo groups for quite awhile and it never
occured to me until this morning to try and find one on reef/salt
My husband purchsed a beautiful new 80 gallon salt water aquarium for
xmas in 2000. He bought it from a local salt water dealer. She has
helped, but not to the extent I would like. I have had my share of
problems as I am sure all people have.
I have about 7 large pieces of beautiful rock. I have one clown
fish, a gobie, and two pajama cardinals.
My problem has been in the last four months. I have had these awful
algae balls start to grown on my rock. First there was just a few
and now there are lots. I wait til they are big enough to pull off,
then I take them out. But it is so flusterating. I want to remove
them all. I have purchase two of the green crabs. I heard they were
good at removing them. But they have not even touched them.
I would like to pull the rock and clean them in some way. I would
appreciate any help on how to remove them or clean the rock or if
there is something else to eliminate them. My water levels are all
really well. Fish are healthy, water is clear.
I am just really stumped on how to get rid of these algae balls.
I look forward to your responses.
