    Anyone know where I can find some? I called AC and they don't carry them. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!

    Neptune carries them occasionally . You can also get them on Ebay as long as you're willing to pay shipping for $15 - 30 in stock

    I need some robust GHA eaters. Dealing with an outbreak after getting back from vacation.

    Trust me, you don’t want order online via shipping, I’ve tried 3 times and all arrived melted in bag of soup. Get it locally or get sea hare, same thing I believe?

    Red emerald and short spine urchins get my vote for that.

    You don't want lettuce with peppermint shtimps... I think the shrimps will eat em. At least nine did

    Good info, but I don't have peppermint shrimps. I do have a cleaner shrimp... will it eat them? I thought about getting a tuxedo urchin but my tank is only a 20 gallon and I just picture the thing knocking down all the coral it passes lol.

    Dunno about cleaners...

    I have 4 shortspine and 2 pin cushion urchins in my 13G... no issues with knocking things down except for loose plugs and frags...the urchins drag em along

    My nano is super stocked too

    Nice. Would love to see a pic of your tank. Do you have a journal here?

    blue leg hermit crabs work for hair algae, fluconazole also worked for me

    Tempted to, but not planning to put any crabs in my tank. Don't want a snail killing spree lol.

    my blue/red crabs are bunch of slackers, i had so many, and they just went after fish food and not touching the algae.

    My experience with Tuxedo urchins is that they don't get that big and spines are pretty short. Minimal damage to frags as long as you glue them down. Used to have one in my 12G nano.

    I would go with a couple (or more) turbos.

    I wouldn't go with a sea hare for a 20g tank. They can get big and if that thing died in a 20g tank, goodbye tank.

    Where can I get fluconazole?

    I don't think you need fluconazole. Let it run its course. Your tank is still new and stabilizing. Nutrient levels will get a little out of balance because of constant new additions and changes in feeding schedule. Uglies are common in a new tank. Get a few turbos and keep up with WC schedule.

    I think you'll cause more problems trying to do too much rather than letting it ride and run its due course.

    Here's a terrible shot but what I have on my phone at the moment... this is one of my nanos in my row of nanos... can take better shot.

    The urchins made a huge diff. My tank was super clean until my workhorse urchin died, on top of an unfortunate tank crash
