    after having salinity over 50, phosphates through the roof, four dead snails and a dead blenny, multiple water changes and phosguard, my salinity and phosphates are perfect. time to add some algae eaters! recommendations? I'd like to add a couple fish and snails. I'm thinking watchman goby?

    Lawnmower blenny, or a variation like staryy or midnight blenny, is always a good option.

    I really liked my starry blenny but I never saw him eating algae.

    I love my starry blenny but he works about as hard for his food as I do.

    I haven’t seen mine in the process but once I notice a ump of hair algae growing on his ledge. The next day it was completely cleaned - he cut it like a lawn mower :)

    Look before you leap...one of my beloved clowns leapt to their death this morning during morning recess. I just checked the tank and noticed him missing. found him on the floor and no joy. Time to build a lid!

    You can build a screen top with mesh pretty easily too.

    the stupid thing is i bought one and never got around to cutting it with a hacksaw. Order of business tomorrow. Found the other one on the ground a minute ago but saved him. He looks good right now
