Leaf on the Wind
Hey all. Just thinking about picking up a lettuce sea slug for some quick hair algae/bryopsis help. The bryopsis I can deal with, pretty easy to pull out. But the hair algae is killing me. Especially on the hard to reach LR. Never had a problem till a recent coral brought some into the tank and its slowly invading. I do all the slow, long term care to eradicate but wanted some help in the mean time and have read these lettuce slugs can devour it. Now I have heard conflicting info and wanted your input. My plan is to buy 1 or 2 and see if they eat it. As the algae is depleted I will trade them back to my LFS. In your experience are they worth purchasing? Do they actually eat the stuff (of course each animal is different). Lastly I heard these guys often die in our tanks and I don't like promoting the sale of animals that have no chance of survival. Any thoughts? Tnx!
