glass, powerhead, heater, everything including hermit crabs LOL
Not sure what he was doing but I've seen my turbo do this too a couple of times. It doesn't look like he is eating it but I've seen him scrape some off of the LR and leave little shavings on the substrate.
So would I be good to add them now so it never gets to bad?
LOL. During tax season, I would have to put my normal maintenance routine on hold as I was at the office by 5 and wouldn't get home until 8 (plus working weekends). I would keep a little window open so I could see into the tank a little bit. The fish would have to take turns looking through the window begging for food. Then every April 16th, I would take the day off and have to scrape, and scrape, and scrape until my arms couldn't move. Urchins don't even help. Sure they eat coralline algae....however, they poop out still living spores and it spreads it around.
I am NOT a fan of coralline algae.
Yep... I remember.... oh, how much I wanted Coralline in my aquarium. But ask me today... that has changed as scraping and scraping and scraping has become part of my routine cleaning. Not only scraping the glass, but also bathing my equipment, including pumps, heaters and anything else in contact with that water in a mix of water and muriatic acid.
This is one of those "be careful what u wish for" cases

you and peredhill should form a club. have you seen what he has going on over there? lol...
Hmm... where is peredhill? I was wondering that the other day, haven't seen him around. BTW, I agree coralline in a PITA ;D
I've been building my house ;D
Ah, congrats! Glad to see you around again :thumb_up:
and lurking Congrats on the house, sounds like a lot of decisions to make but a build your own home project must be fun. Did you look at the plans with your tank in mind at some point?
