    I need something that destorys Ulva. I have a Ulva sprouting problem in my DT. I put some in for my tangs and I guess little pieces left over sprouted up now it looks like I have dozens of leaves growing in the sand now. Would hermits do the job? emerald crabs?

    hermits and emeralds would eat it, turbos would too. Seahares...anything with cutting power really. The tangs and angel arent eating it back?

    Not fast enough. I have a feeling that soon I will have a yard on my sand. It is starting to attach to rocks but the tangs dont touch much of it.

    well if you need it gone that fast a seahare or an urchin is your best bet. The west indian sea eggs I sell will demolish it, a few turbos and a sea hare to boot...wouldnt last a week.
