  1. The THINK Tank
    I have a small patch of hair algae starting up in my tank after getting rid of a cyano problem which I think was caused by phosphates leaching from the dry rock I added about 4 months ago.

I'm not really looking for an answer whether or not they do eat the stuff or not, but rather which ones are best at it? I know there is a variety of species of tangs, and most/all that I have read...

    Been fighting this HA mess for about a month now in my 10g nano. I've got my params pretty much down perfect now. I do a 25% water change every 3 days and feed my 2 fish only a very, very tiny bit every 4 days (feel like I'm almost starving them but I'm trying to get out all the nutrients from...
