I have something called cyanobacteria I think. We had bought 5 turbo snails to help with it and it was totally gone in about a day, however, I have a large strawberry hermit crab that would try to eat them, and now I have a puffer fish. What can I get to help with the problem?
Well, I thought it was cyanobacteria, but I saw the pictures that Roger posted when he had that problem and that's not what mine looks like. It looks like a rust colored dust. Not hairy like Roger's. Like if I dropped paprika on the glass and the rock. Can anyone help?
HOw long as the tank been up and what are the water parameters.
The parameters are fine. We test them at least once a week. The tank has bee set up for 6 months. I do want to say though, we have no live rock yet. Can't seem to find any that's less than $9/lb. Would that help?
It will help with filtering the water alot. Mine did that until I got a mag 12 sump pump and added 2 more PH's. Try more water flow.
