Mindy, have you ever used the red leg crabs, similar to the blues, instead of scarlets?
Oh yeah, I forgot you live in Kamloops. Yeah, the red legs are just as murderous as the blue legs. Scarlets are the only ones I keep - they are worth the extra few bucks.

Another thing about this algae is that it will not come out. I scrub with a stainless steel wire toothbrush. We removed a large one covered with it and replaced it, which is now covered in algae anyways.
My friend had it in a tub in the dark for a month and the algae actually grew. He took a large wire brush to it and removed nothing.

ALGAE FROM HELL

This past year must be making up for the 35 good years I had before..

I think I have the same stuff - probably the crappy water via our over rated kamloops water treatment plant

I just changed my ro filters after a long period and they were not even dirty a bit. I thought we had good water here,esp compared to the crap we had in Brandon.

Everyone here seems to think its great water - probably because the city tells us so. stains toilets and tastes horrible.

of course I'm used to abbotsford water, voted best on earth every couple years

I was just commenting on TDS. May have other problems though. Anyways I solved mine. I have a guy coming for my tank & algae infested rock for his fish only.
I bought Mikes 35g RSM and the good rock. Its a good home for my sps corals and small fishies.

You just can't make up your mind which tank to use.

wish you had a solution - I know the back of my tank and sump is becoming horrible - recently lost much of my SPS except a couple strong ones (monti)

Im happy with my current tank but the algae is horrible. Guess its crap rock now. So instead of replacing the rock in there, just going to the RSM and its good rock.
Mind you, I will likely transfer some of the algae over on my frag plugs and be fighting it anyways..

How long has the algae been in there? Hasn't this tank only been setup for a couple months? If that's the case, I think it's a pretty rash decision.
