Fire Shrimp picking my rocks clean...
Hey guys I have a question here. So I have a main large rock in my tank that was gathering a lot of purple algae on the top (coralline?) and I come home today and my fire shrimp was picking at it feverishly and now its nearly spotless!.. Isn't coralline a good thing here... I did a lot of searching and couldn't find any info on this. Is this normal? or am I mistaking this purple buildup for something other than coralline?'
Thanks in advance
Thats a new one on me. Never heard of that before. Fire Shrimp are not capable of eating Coralline Algae as far as I know, they aren't able to get it off the rock. ?? New one for sure. Or did your Coralline bleach out?
Possible its not Coralline. Got a pic of whats in the tank he could be eating?
you sure its Coraline , if its slimy it might be red algae not Coraline
I mistook it as Coraline when I started out , snails had a field day cleaning it up had clean streaks all over rocks till they got it all
