    Heya, So my reef tank has been set up and running for about 6 months now and I am just now getting a couple algae blooms( red and green) and my hermit crabs are not really doing the job. Would a blenny or a foxface help me out? Or would something else help better? Right now there...

    I had the strangest thing happen in my 75gal reef yesterday. I woke up, dressed and went downstairs for my morning routine tank check and feeding. When I looked in the top, I found one of my pair of stripped blennies belly up and stuck to the side of my overflow trap. I figure "crap, lost...
