Q&A Letter Spotlight

Fred and Amanda writes to Bob about:
Algae Control

Hi Bob, We have had a bad algae problem for about three years! We were told it was hair algae but not sure and have attached a photo so you can see it. It looks like seaweed and is impossible to get rid of. We were told that it came from the brine shrimp we fed our fish and that it was in the water that they freeze the shrimp in, so now rinse all our shrimp first. All of our water tests come up ideal. It's a 75 gallon reef tank and were told to get a sea hare to eat it, and we did, two large ones and two small Caribbean type. They did the trick. But before we did that, there weren't more.
