Hi,

I have this feather macro algae in my aquarium and it's driving me crazy. I have a refugium (reverse day light) w/ the grape macro algae but the feather just grows like crazy and interferes w/ the corals, etc. I was thinking of getting a fish to help eliminate the algae (or at least control it). I have a purple tang who's been in the tank for about 5 years and he's fairly agressive (although he's only about 4" long - kind of a runt - including tail). I also have a 6 line wrasse and a little mandrin gobi. I have a 100 gallon TruVu w/ a 40 gallon sump/refugium.

What kind of fish would be the best for my tank?

Please respond and thanks,

Dave

Actually, with Piero, I'd be worried about the part that was sticking up when ya put his head in the tank - ya never know what might happen :)

I'll have to make it to Portland to get a fish. I think that the probability of getting my purple tang out is diminishingly small. Actually, now that I think about it, he wasn't too bad when I had a sailfin tang in the tank, it was my wifes very nasty Clarke clown that did the sail fin in.

Is there anyone in town you'd trust not to have a quaranteen tank? I'll look into another Sailfin or possibly a Rabbit Fish (I'll have to look that one up).

Any other suggestions?

Dave
