    a few days ago i found one on the sand, and tonight when taking some pics of my firefish i noticed that i'm getting an outbrake on my rocks.

    What is a good way to get rid of it and what eats it?

    Also when looking close at them in the pictures some are tear shaped and some are round

    HELP!!

    lol what's the point of spending money on ro/di water when i'm getting algae anyways. Your tangs should come live with me! wanna switch! imagine all those big tangs in my little tank and all my little fish in your tank lol you wouldn't even be able to find the helfrichi's firefish!
