    What size tank? Lettuce nudis are awesome, but for a quick fix I would dump turbo snails and emerald crabs in. They'll clean like no tomorrow. Let me know what size tank. You can shoot me a text too 503-784-5059

    No turbo snails or emerald crabs for the specific tank she is talking about. Can you get either the red lettuce nudi or a sea slug that is the ugly spiky kind not the smooth kind? This is what I want in the tank to help clean it up without risking anything else in the tank.

    Why? I keep turbos and emeralds in all my tanks, with all my designer corals. I can get lettuce, but not before next week.

    Turbos fall and die in the worst places, emeralds are opportunistic feeders and will basically eat anything they can if it is available. I just dont want to take the risk with what is in that tank. The bryopsis can go another week and will be fine. I will check with Amber tonight after I get off of work just to make sure, obviously it is her call ultimately but my recommendation is to wait for the sea slug / nudis

    Turbos and emeralds won't eat bryopsis. That's y. Foxfaces or lettuce nudis are the way to go. Lettuce nudis are sensitive and delicate. Def don't add more turbos for a problem they won't fix

    As much as I normally don't say this, hit up north petco and see if there are any Foxfaces in. Mine use to get rotated thru all 6 tanks and cleaned them of all algea for months repeatedly until his ultimate demise. Emeralds will eventually turn on other stuff and we all know how jj loves his expensive stuff.

    Have levi def bump mag up to 1500 and you'll need to manually remove as much as possible by hand to get process started

    They will eat it, actually. But it's Amber's call. I keep emeralds in with all my tanks, including all the designer Zoas. I wouldn't introduce a new fish without quarantine first.

    Ok. If they did then the millions who battle bryopsis would simply add them for only 5 eaxh instead of wasting money on Kent tech mag and all the other ways that actually do

    And tons of us have petco fish in our systems. JJ will perpetually have ich in his system so adding a fish won't hurt as bad as the byropsis

    No two emeralds are alike. Emeralds are famous for bubble algae but I have heard numerous stories of people getting them for a bubble algae issue and have none of them actually do anything to help. I'd just rather be safe than sorry and is the same reason a foxface will not be going into the tank.

    If peppermints worked for aptasia wouldn't the millions who battle aptasia just throw in a few $3 peps instead of spending money on lasers and aptasia X?

    So there's nothing currently in the tank that eats algae?

    And they do, why do you think when ppl get aptasia they call me for my expert peps. Some people don't know about them or are likewise confused on other "supposed" ways to battle it and or get sold the wrong peps. I enjoying educating facts and proven ways like with a fox of lettuce nudis in lieu of possible ways or chemical ways. Just my thought process on saving money and effectiveness

    the tank I'm tracking that the issue is In doesn't have cuc in it no. But tossing a fox in said tank would be fine as there are no any zoas in it, last I heard anyways

    My foxface died a couple weeks ago and a week later i started to notice some bryopsis for the first time ever. Luckily he never messed with any corals. Johnathan are you doing any fish orders in the near future.

    There are zoas in the tank as well as two sunburst nems and some designer sponges.
