I plan on getting a way larger one once I buy a house at the end of the year. Yeas that hair alge. I liked the look of it. I need some more rock though, but all the stuff around here is boring rock.

Tank looks good, but believe me, the hair algae may look kinda cool at first, but it won't when it covers everything in the tank and makes the water into a smelly green soup. Best to take care of it early IMHO. Hair algae isn't something that one can keep just a little of and have it under control.

I have some blue leg and red leg hermits in there and couple bumble bee snails and a couple turbo snails. All together I have about 15-20 hermits. Would that do fine ? If it starts to spread and see that my hremits cant keep up should I just pull it out ?

I thought of that but $$ is tight right now and Safeway is right down the street. I plan on getting one in the future though. Hey thanks for all the info....
